Grants of up to $5,000 to British Columbia nonprofit registered charitable organizations for projects that increase community capacity in the Kimberley Zone of school district #6. Programs may fall in the areas of the environment, arts, culture, health, sport, and education.

Community capacity building occurs when grants:
- Enhance the strengths and human assets of an organization rather than focusing on deficiencies and needs.
- Involve several groups in the development and implementation of a project, build organizational capacities and instill a broader sense of project ownership.
- Create broad community support and participation.
- Ensure the project has sustainable results.
- Create and strengthen community networks.

Funds will be granted to organizations that illustrate in their application their ability to increase community capacity.
