If you are a registered charity, you must enter your organization’s Registered Charitable Number. If you are a CBE school or department and do not know the CBE registered charitable number, simply write CBE. If you do not know your organization’s registration number, contact your organization’s executive director or accountant.

All applications MUST have the support of an authorized “signing authority” within the CBE (e.g. Superintendent, Area Director, School Principal) who approves of the program/project and is willing to sign off on the application.
