Imagine Canada

Strong Charities. Strong Communities.

Grant Connect is celebrating 50 years. Let's shape the next 50 together.

We connect you with funders who share your cause so that big things can happen.

Grant Connect’s Funder Search tool has been instrumental in helping PLAN Toronto to identify and target funders whose goals and interests most closely align with our work. This has not only saved us valuable time that we can redirect to supporting families with a relative with a disability, but has also enabled us to secure much-needed funds to increase our reach and impact.” ~Becky Rossi, Director of Communications and Strategic Development, PLAN Toronto

What do Grant Connect, Star Trek, and the Canadian Pension Plan all have in common?

They launched in 1966! First published as the Guide to Foundations and similar grant-giving agencies (think Yellow Pages for funders), Grant Connect has been the go-to philanthropic research resource for fifty years. We are proud to have played our part in the innovation, impact, and progress the Canadian charitable sector has made over the last five decades.

A lot has changed since the 1960s but some things have remained the same. Charities still rely on us to provide high quality, easy to use information and to continually adapt Grant Connect to meet their needs. Join us in 2016 as we look ahead to the future of philanthropy. Subscribe to our free e-newsletter, Grantseeker Monthly, to stay up to date with everything we have planned. 

The Imagine Canada research advantage

Your number one priority when choosing a funder database is its level of accuracy. You need data that is reliable, relevant, and up-to-date. That’s why our research team is your best asset. In addition to verifying every single line of data we put into Grant Connect, we communicate directly with funders, giving you access to exclusive information. By doing this for decades we’ve built a database that is superior to everything else in Canada. 

A different approach to pricing 

Strengthening the charitable sector is at the core of what we do at Imagine Canada . This is why we are committed to keeping Grant Connect accessible to charities of all sizes. We offer affordable subscription plans and discounts to small charities. Plus you can get started with no contract or long-term commitment. We know you’ll stick around without one.
