The Foundation does not fund ongoing administrative salaries (except under the IBPOC Residency stream), ongoing administrative costs, deficit financing, debt repayment or capital campaigns.
Normal programming activities are not eligible, but new programs or significant expansions are eligible if they can advance the organization in a meaningful way, and it is their understanding that new activities may require additional administrative capacity, which is an eligible expense.
They do not provide operating or undesignated funding, nor do they fund retroactively. If you are incurring costs before their assessment meeting, the expenses may be ineligible.

When applying for funding to support the above processes, it is important to articulate the significant impact the work will have for the organization by being undertaken at this time.
New programming initiatives that advance your organization’s artistic or presentation practices are also eligible, including programs that involve collaboration between artists, arts companies, or other non-profit organizations.
When applying for funding to support programming initiatives, it is important to articulate where the potential for significant organizational impact lies resulting from the program, whether it is in the development of a stronger business model, the creation of a new revenue stream, a long-term beneficial partnership, or in another way.
The following requirements apply to all Rozsa Foundation granting streams:
You must be a charity with a valid CRA charitable business number (9 digits, 2 letters, 4 digits).
You must be an arts-focused organization or be applying for support in engaging the arts to further your mission.
The focus of the investment is in Calgary and the surrounding area (including Rocky View County, MD Foothills, Banff, Canmore, Drumheller, and Rosebud) as well as to provincial organizations whose initiatives will directly benefit the Calgary arts sector. Action Learning Projects are eligible regardless of where in Alberta the organization is based.
Organizations located outside of these areas may still be eligible but should contact them prior to beginning the application.
