Funding Opportunities Update

Funding is extremely important to not-for-profit organizations. The Funding Opportunities Update provides information about grants, funders and funding deadlines. 

One of the key objectives of the Durham Local Immigration Partnership Council (DLIP) is to increase the capacity of Durham’s service provider organizations, including the not-for-profit and charitable sectors. A strong not-for-profit/charitable sector is essential in meeting the needs of all Durham residents. Sharing the Funding Opportunities Update benefits the broader community as a whole.

Note: Funding Opportunities Updates are not exhaustive lists of funding opportunities and should not preclude you investigating funding opportunities on your own. If you find a grant that you think should be added to the list, please let us know by emailing
