The SPC is actively involved in sponsoring and guiding projects associated with community groups and emerging non-profit organizations.
The SPC-Peel acts as a fiscal sponsor (or lead agency) for agencies and groups who are unable to apply for grants on their own because they are not yet incorporated or do not meet the eligibility requirements of funders.
