How We Give – Grant Process


Rangers Reach Community Impact Grants will support local grassroots, not-for-profit and charitable organizations through varying levels of grants. Rangers Reach will open applications for grant funding annually each fall. Priority for funding is given to organizations that align with Rangers Reach’s focus areas. There are two types of funding applications, unrestricted and restricted. Applicants for restricted funds must be eligible recipients of Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario Lottery Funds because the funds distributed are raised through 50/50 raffles operated by Rangers Reach. (

Grant catergories are as follows… Education, Youth/Amateur Sport and Community Philanthropy.

Each year during the call for applications, we will specify if applications are being sought in all three areas, or if there is a specific focus for that year’s investments.

Please visit HOW TO APPLY for information on when Grant Cycles are open and the Application Link when applicable.

We anticipate total funds available to the community for all grants in this cycle to be approximately $30,000.00
