Investment Readiness Program Funding

funding opportunity image

The Investment Readiness Program (IRP) offers funding between $10,000 to $100,000 (with the average funding size of approximately $40,000) to support social purpose organizations, which includes non-profits, charities, co-ops, and for-profit social enterprises, to move along the continuum from great ideas to investment-ready. In the midst of COVID-19, social purpose organizations are especially critical for BC’s recovery efforts by helping to address some of the biggest social, economic, cultural, and environmental challenges we face.
