XYZ Foundation Seed Grant
Established in 2001 by a trio of entrepreneurs after the sale of their business, the XYZ Foundation has $65 million in assets and a goal to advance youth entrepreneurism across North America. In a networked funding model, the XYZ Foundation provides grants and low interest loans to support entrepreneurs and other entrepreneurial programs across arts & culture, resilient economy, and products/services promoting healthy lifestyles. The size of the grants and loans will vary depending on the financial need and potential impact of the ventures ($5,000 to $250,000).
Grants will be available to qualified non-profits and charities while loans will be available to for-profit enterprises.
Seed, or Pilot, Grants allow you to build your idea up from the conceptual stage. Research a new concept or approach, prototype your idea, conduct a feasibility study or convene stakeholders around an issue in a new or novel way.
