We support a variety of initiatives that strengthen communities across Canada, spanning arts and culture, education, health and wellness, community development and social services.
We carefully review each proposal we receive. Here’s what we are looking for.
Show us how your initiative will make a difference. Building stronger communities together begins with a compelling story. Please be thorough, and mindful of our categories of support and exclusions. Whatever the format of your submission, you’ll help us see the potential in your ideas by addressing the following:
Before finalizing your proposal, have a last review to ensure you have prepared a thorough package that gives a full understanding of your project or event. Consider what additional, relevant information you could provide to strengthen your submission. For example: for an event, include the date or date range; number of participants expected; waivers, licenses and liability insurance in place; a sponsorship package; and/or a case for support. Once your materials are assembled, see Submitting Your Proposal.
Complete, print and submit the proposal cover page along with your proposal and any supporting materials. If one of our local offices is involved with your organization, please ensure your key contact at that office receives a copy of your proposal, and provides a letter of endorsement.
Because most proposals contain attachments that make it difficult to transmit securely by email, please mail or courier your materials to:
Stronger Communities Together™
Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life
100 Osborne Street North

Our goal is to contribute to lasting positive change through creative, coordinated efforts with charities, non-profits and community organizations. Before preparing your proposal, refer to what we do and don’t support in the Frequently Asked Questions section.
Submit a single proposal. Stronger Communities Together is a single policy and program for Great-West Life, London Life (including Freedom 55 Financial) and Canada Life.
While we accept proposals throughout the year, to help us plan together we encourage one annual proposal as early in the calendar year as possible.
Help us fully understand how your organization is helping our communities grow stronger by providing a complete and comprehensive proposal along with your proposal cover page.
Our goal is to acknowledge and respond within 90 days.
Please take time to review frequently asked questions.
