Due to the overwhelming volume of funding requests received, CIBC will only consider online applications.
- Our community investment professionals follow a rigorous process when evaluating proposals to ensure funds are invested with the utmost care and responsibility. The process includes an assessment of your charity's financial statements as well as its fiscal management and governance practices. We require our charitable partners to clearly demonstrate the social impact of our contribution. Our funding evaluation process may also include a review by regional and/or national committees.
- Funding requests are reviewed regularly throughout the year. While a decision will generally be made within 8 weeks following your submission, it may take up to 16 weeks before a decision is made depending on the size and complexity of your request.
