Are there children in your school in need?

If the answer is yes, then The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund Adopt-A-School program wants to hear from you.

Are the students at your local school in need of food, clothing and/or learning tools? Our registered charity and its programs are designed to provide funds and other basic necessities for children in need, and we accept applications from schools and school boards throughout British Columbia.


Grants are awarded only to organizations that are recognized as “qualified donees” under the Canadian Income Tax Act (more information available here) and are restricted to projects benefiting children in the province of British Columbia.

Our 2022 Grants Program is NOW OPEN for applications. 

The grant application can be found at:

APPLICATION DEADLINE:  October 15, 2022 We are still accepting submissions.

The VSCF Society appreciates that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused changes to the way services are delivered. We also recognize that if the pandemic situation changes, federal, provincial and public health requirements and guidelines may change during the course of grant activities. We ask applicants to indicate on their grant application how they have factored changing health requirements / guidelines into project planning, and how the planned activities may be affected if schools are required to change existing operations or shut down.

Guidelines for the grant application system can be downloaded here.  Grants can be saved in progress, but to prepare information in advance a copy of the 2021 grant questions can be downloaded here.
