How to Apply
It’s easy to apply for funding from the Brooke Forbes Legacy Fund. You have to be a registered Charity in Canada and you have to have a good idea for a project that provides minority youth with audio production skills. We award approximately $2200 each fiscal year. We are currently open for applications for 2020-2021. Deadline for submissions is April 17, 2020, 5 pm PST.

The applications are reviewed by the Brooke Forbes Legacy Fund Advisory Committee which consists of Joan Andersen, Joy Crysdale, Karen Levine and Sid Sawyer. We were colleagues and friends of Brooke's, either at the CBC or Co-op Radio. Brooke meant a lot to all of us and we feel privileged to be able to keep her dream alive.
In May 2021, the Fund was donated to Carleton University's School of Journalism and Communication to set up the Brooke Forbes Award for Internships in the field Audio Production. Students who are Black, Indigenous or a Person of Colour and demonstrate an interest in audio production can apply to have costs related to their internships covered by the Brooke Forbes Award.
