The purpose of the Trust is to offer annual grants – Full-Grants and Micro-Grants – that will: 

  • help support healthy permanent placements;
  • encourage innovative research, projects and initiatives;
  • develop a higher level of awareness of permanency options in our communities, and;
  • facilitate adoption programs and services within B.C.


  • assist in the development of, or attendance at, special events, workshops, and conferences;
  • provide support to new or existing local groups and networks related to adoption, culture and race;
  • contribute to organizational systems and training, and;
  • recognize and celebrate individuals promoting permanency options for children and youth.

Applicants do not have to be registered charities. 
Applications from individuals are also welcome however, applications for direct support to individual families are not accepted.

(The Trust’s Full Grants valued at up to $20,000 each are awarded in the fall of each year.)
