The deadline is December 15 to apply for a grant for the current year.
Local charities and provincial and local sport groups benefit greatly from the support of volunteers. The Bell Volunteer Program recognizes the volunteer work of retirees through grants that provide direct financial support to the registered charitable organizations or sport groups for which you volunteer.
The amount of an individual grant is $250. The amount of the team grant is $2,500. There is a limit of one grant per retiree per calendar year, either on your own or as a member of a team. The maximum total grant for a single organization is $2,500 per calendar year.
To apply for an individual grant, you must have volunteered a minimum of 50 hours in the calendar year to a single registered charitable organization or a single sport group that meets the Program eligibility criteria.
To apply for a team grant, your team of volunteers, comprised of at least two Bell representatives (retirees or employees), must have volunteered a minimum of 500 hours in the calendar year to a single registered charitable organization or a single sport group, with at least 250 hours contributed by the Bell representatives.
You can apply anytime during the year, as soon as your hours have been accumulated. The deadline is December 15 for the current year.
