Being’s funding is guided by specific country priorities determined through locally driven country analyses and consultations with youth, policymakers, local organizations, and mental health experts in our 12 priority countries.

Available Funding Opportunities:

POC funding up to $250,000 CAD will be awarded over 15, 18 or 24 months to early-stage projects that can implement, test and refine solutions to country-specific personal, social, and/or environmental factors impacting young people’s mental health and wellbeing in one of the 12 countries.

TTS funding between $300,000 CAD and $1,500,000 CAD over 12-48 months will be awarded to support organizations that align with country-specific priorities along their scaling journey to help catalyze their sustainability and impact.  

  1. Ecosystem Catalyst (EC) Funding 

EC funding between $200,000 CAD and $300,000 CAD over 24 months will be awarded to organizations that can address priority barriers to scale, such as legislation, evidence, coordination, and mobilize demand for the scale-up of effective solutions in one of the 12 countries.
