The ImpactWX Genesis Grant provides small grants to community groups and organizations that are focused on developing new ideas related to severe weather response and awareness.

ImpactWX is a Toronto-based social impact fund with a mission to enable organizations that, through scientific understanding and public awareness, work to improve people’s response and safety during severe weather events. We are proud to have experience partnering with world-class organizations that actively move the needle on our understanding of severe weather and are thrilled to introduce a new stream of community-oriented funding through the ImpactWX Genesis Grant.

Aligned with our mission, this fund seeks to support initiatives that can improve vulnerable people’s response and safety during severe weather events.
