Apply for Funding
Suncor and the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF) proudly contribute to non-profit and charitable organizations in Canada and internationally.
If you’re looking for an application form, you’ve come to the right place. However, we do not currently have a form to provide you. During the pandemic, we removed it when our budget was reduced to prevent you from the trouble of applying for funds that were not available. More recently, we see the opportunity to rethink our process and the kinds of effort we require of you. When we re-launch the application form, it will hopefully be easier for you to complete. In the meantime, if you have an idea that fits within one of the categories described below, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
Types of funding
Suncor and SEF proudly contribute to registered charitable organizations in Canada and internationally that align with our community investment funding priorities: Indigenous, community and energy. Before applying, please review the details of these priorities.
Suncor supports non-profit and charitable activities and events that align with our community investment funding priorities and business interests through sponsorships and donations (including donations to organizations that do not have charitable status), financial assistance, in-kind contributions, product donations and event sponsorships.
SEF’s donation program for Canadian post-secondary institutions is called “Driving Innovation and Reducing Barriers.” This program was created to further support SEF’s existing funding priorities, and reduce or eliminate barriers to participation for students and community members while supporting society in moving toward a more fair and sustainable economic system.
Applications are now open until May 13, 2022.
More information about the program is available here:
