What We Look For

The Programs that Dollar A Day seeks to fund are underpinned, like the foundation itself, by a fundamental belief in the value of each and every person. We fund front line programs that support professionals in diagnosing and treating persons with mental illness and addictions in a timely and respectful manner irrespective of politics, religion, gender, race, or ability to pay. As we are not experts in mental health and addictions, we rely on the expertise of great partners (like the Canadian Mental Health Association) to identify specific needs and programs that are making a difference. Here is what we consider in funding programs on behalf of our donors:

  • Frontline Programs - Does the program have a positive impact on a person suffering today? 
  • Demand/Need - Is there a compelling need for this program in this area/region?
  • Lasting Impact - Does the program have the potential to be life changing? 
  • Measurable Results - How are these impacts measured?
  • Ability to Replicate - Could the program be successfully replicated elsewhere?
  • Innovative - Is there potential be groundbreaking in terms of its overall impact?
  • Regional impact - There is a desire to fund programs in every province and territory in Canada.

Content

The Dollar a Day Foundation works primarily through its partners to identify programs to fund. However, if your organization delivers front line programs in support of persons with mental health and addictions we encourage you to submit a two-page summary of your project outlining how it fits with our mission and the criteria we’ve outlined in What We Look For. Don’t forget your contact information and relevant links to online information.
