The Shevchenko Foundation Grants Program supports the preservation and promotion of Ukrainian Canadian cultural heritage and the development of a flourishing Ukrainian community for the enrichment of Canada.

The Shevchenko Foundation fulfills its mandate by disbursing grants to organizations, groups and individuals in support of Ukrainian Canadian cultural development in four pillars: Arts, Community Development, Heritage, and Education.

The Arts Program recognizes the value of the arts as a fundamental aspect of expressing a unique cultural identity and promoting the creation, advancement and dissemination of Ukrainian Canadian artistic endeavours. The Arts Program is comprised of 6 sectors – Dance, Literary Arts, Media Arts, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts.

Through the Community Development Program we demonstrate our commitment to the sustainability of a vibrant and flourishing Ukrainian community in Canada, and to fostering a sense of common identity and fellowship, participation in community life, and strengthening of community institutions.

Knowledge of the Ukrainian language, culture and history are important components of Ukrainian community identity in Canada together with recognition of the contribution Ukrainians made to Canadian society and history. The Education Program seeks to increase and disseminate knowledge of all aspects of Ukrainian life in Canada through traditional and non-traditional educational programming.

The Heritage Program is intended to ensure that the history of the Ukrainian community in Canada is preserved and that the important sources of Ukrainian Canadian history and life are not lost to future generations.
