Helping people with disabilities save for the future
Endowment 150 offers eligible people with disabilities a one-time grant of $150 to help their Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) grow. This $150 grant, plus grants and bonds available from the Federal Government, will grow and help you save for your future or that of a loved one.
You can apply for the E150 on behalf of a child with a disability (under the age of 18) if:
The child is a BC resident and is 17 years old or younger
You hold an RDSP where the child is the beneficiary
- The child with a disability must be listed as the RDSP’s beneficiary.
- Find out how to get an RDSP if you don’t already have one.
The child has not previously received a $150 Endowment 150 grant from Vancouver Foundation or Plan Institute
Adults aged 18-59 have different eligibility criteria. For details, please see the application form for adults.
Here’s what you’ll need to include with your application to Endowment 150:
A copy of a recent RDSP statement, transaction record, or confirmation from the bank where your RDSP is deposited
- Make sure this includes: the RDSP beneficiary (the child with a disability that the RDSP is intended to support), the RDSP holder (often a parent or guardian), and the RDSP account number
- “Recent” means dated less than 6 months ago
If you do not have a copy of a recent RDSP statement or transaction record, have this RDSP Verification form filled out and stamped by your financial institution.
You can now receive the E150 payment via Cheque OR Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT)!
