Funding Partners

Appreciation and Acknowledgment

The following organizations assist EPIC in providing programs and projects that benefit marginalized youth and their caregivers.

Law Foundation of Nova Scotia

As our major funding partner since 2004, The Law Foundation's mandate and EPIC's stated purposes are an excellent match. This synchronicity of goals allows EPIC the flexibility and the freedom to set its own course while always keeping in its sights in the direction that both organizations want to go.

We are also grateful to have received significant annual funding from:

NS Justice Community Grants

United Way Cape Breton

NS Community Services for Youth

NS Communities, Culture & Heritage
Building Vibrant Communities


Our Continued Thanks!

About Funding:

From its beginning, EPIC has run its programs and projects from year-to-year, based on uncertain funding. Part of the struggle with any community-based organization is providing services that fulfill the interests of funding sources while, at the same time, keeping the organization that meets those needs alive and well. After 20 years and many testimonials and awards, EPIC now enjoys a higher level of provincial and local support than ever before. This, along with the continued funding from The Law Foundation of Nova Scotia affords this worthy organization a modicum of financial security. But financial support is never taken for granted.

EPIC has been successful at surviving and thriving for many reasons, but here are a few:

  • Forging and maintaining good relations with all levels of government, private foundations and corporations by offering accountability and integrity along with its well-managed, effective programs and projects
  • Hours and hours of volunteer time have gone into researching funding sources, writing proposals and reports and working in partnership with governmental and private sources of funding.
  • EPIC has been flexible and innovative in stretching itself to challenges that arise from funding issues.
