People collaborating in the Incubator

About the Fund

The Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement is embedded in Kitchener-Waterloo’s vibrant innovation ecosystem, and supports individuals and teams who are ready to put wheels to their idea. Our Epp Peace Incubator program enables students, recent grads, and community members to take their initiative to the next level.

One crucial element of support is access to funding. Through the Peace Incubator Fund, incubator members are able to access seed funding once per semester to accelerate their learning and stimulate the development of their venture.

The Fund's impacts

This funding has benefited the ventures in our incubator program in many ways, including:

  • Sponsoring a pilot project to test a core service;
  • Supporting business development training;
  • Covering costs of market research; and
  • Financing opportunities for political engagement.

Support peacebuilding work today!

In September 2017, the Centre for Peace Advancement received a significant challenge gift to amplify this support, and the Centre's commitment continues today. Any contributions to the Peace Incubator Fund will be matched dollar for dollar, dramatically increasing the funding available.

To have your gift doubled donate through our online donation page.

In “Gift Designation” choose “Peace Incubator Fund”. When it comes to Grebel this amount will be matched by the Bauman family Peace Incubator challenge gift so your gift for peace will double!
