SNOW LAKE micro-grants aim to
help eliminate obstacles
without telling you what your obstacles are

Inspired by the micro-lending programs of
2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus,
Micro-Grants have a rich history and have slowly started to appear in the arts. 

Albeit generous and appreciated, 
these grants often feature strict application processes
that are onerous for the applicant and restrictive in nature.  

OUR MICRO-GRANTS ARE INCLUSIVE
&
NON-RESTRICTIVE


It doesn't matter where you live in Canada,
whether you need a little cash for a paint-brush,
gas to get to your gig, or new business cards,
we truly believe that you know your business best.


WE OFFER TWO MICRO-GRANTS

&

HERE'S HOW THEY WORK


THE SNOW LAKE
LOTTERY GRANT 


All members of the snow lake initiative are automatically entered into a monthly draw.


 A recipient will be announced on the 1st of every month through e-mail & then listed at the bottom of our partner’s page and announced on Twitter (@SnowLakeIsGreat).

One member receives $50.

We do not require our members to have online social media accounts to apply and we do not require our members to “like”, “share” or “tweet” anything to receive.

We truly believe our members know their business best, so we have no restrictions on what the funds are used for, but request that our members provide some insight on how they’d use the funds when they accept the grant. 
 

THE SNOW LAKE
