Grants & Loans

CBWC Supports Churches and Pastors

The CBWC supports the ministry of member churches financially by providing grants and loans.

Opportunity Grants

Opportunity Grants are available to churches to undertake innovative new ministries that would otherwise be unaffordable.  The Opportunity Grant Fund has awarded churches more than $4 million dollars so far. Opportunity Grants are awarded only once per year.

Opportunity Grants have been made possible by a generous gift from the Bentall family. In the early 1990’s, the family sold a senior’s residence in Calgary, Trinity Lodge, and donated the proceeds to the CBWC for use in ministry.  We are grateful for their generous foresight.

There is a single application deadline for Opportunity Grants:   April 30, 2017.

Opportunity Grant Application Form

Application Forms can be emailed to or mailed to the CBWC’s Calgary office.

Century II

Since 1980, the CBWC has facilitated more than 100 Century II grants to churches for their ministry.  4 times a year, we solicit donations on behalf of a single church project.  Donors’ gifts combine to provide  $3000-$5000 for small projects to improve facilities or equip the church for ministry.

To apply on behalf of your church, contact your Regional Minister.  To donate, go to our donationspage.
