Grant Application

Thanks for visiting!

The Goodway’s commitment to keeping all proceeds in Kingston starts here and starts with you.

Twice annually we will award cash grants to locally based projects.

Our priorities begin with youth, youth at risk, youth trying to get a hand up, exceptional youth doing exceptional things, people dealing with mental health issues or a project that is destined to enhance our community as a whole.

At this stage we will focus on programming vs bricks, mortar and equipment.

We will also give priority to groups or individuals that have engaged with The Goodway through volunteering, donating, shopping and promoting us to your friends.

The grant application below is the best way to have your request considered. Extra phone calls or visits to talk to Goodway employees will not enhance your opportunity to receive grant money. If we need further clarification about the merits or specifics of your application we will contact you.

You may print this page and  hand write the application although we prefer a typed or electronic submission:
