Organization Opportunity Grant Program

Applications currently closed

The Organization Opportunity Grant Program invests in arts organizations that have demonstrated awareness of their challenges and opportunities, and are able to focus on areas that will allow them to more effectively achieve their mandates. Organizations may allocate these funds to any area of their overall budgets.

The goal of this program is to provide support for Calgary arts organizations that are poised to enhance their contribution to the city.

The Organization Opportunity Grant Program is on a two-year granting cycle. The next application cycle for the Organization Opportunity Grant Program will begin in 2018. Please stay in touch with Calgary Arts Development via our weekly newsletter for program announcements, information sessions, and deadlines.


Organizations who received funding through this program in 2016 must complete an interim report by March 31, 2017. The interim reports will be available February 1, 2017 through our online grant interface. All reports must be submitted through the online granting interface by March 31, 2017 at 4:30pm MST. If a deadline extension is required, Calgary Arts Development must receive a written request before this deadline. See the full Deadline Extension Policy for more information.
