At OTIP, we recognize that not all worthy causes are linked to registered charities. Within the education community, there are many member-led school projects or initiatives that support learning, provide an enriched experience or help those in need. OTIP Sponsorship of School Projects and Initiatives is an opportunity for our members to submit a video application to win $5,000 toward their project.
We received an overwhelming response to this program in its inaugural year, giving away four prizes of $5,000 each. Check out our video below highlighting our 2016/2017 winners.
This year, we wanted to make our program even better. We are very excited to announce that the 2017/2018 OTIP Sponsorship of School Projects and Initiatives will have eight prizes of $5,000 available to be won.
Any member of the education community in the Ontario Public, Catholic or French system can apply. Projects or initiatives must be shown to positively impact the lives of students or educators. Requests do not have to be linked to a registered charity.
Projects that would qualify for funding include but are not limited to:
- School nutritional programs;
- Purchase of musical instruments or band equipment;
- New playground equipment;
- Environmental initiatives like gardens or tree planting;
- Art supplies or programs.
All you need to do is submit a short (less than two minutes) video showcasing your project and you could be our next winner!
