Estimated Size of Grant:

The funds to be distributed in 2020 will be determined based on assessing grant applications and needs in the community as well as the amount of money the Foundation has raised in the previous year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Must meet eligibility criteria of being a qualified donee as defined by the Canada Revenue Agency. Community organizations, which are registered charities or qualified donees under the Income Tax Act, are eligible to apply for grants from the Foundation. Qualified donees are registered charities, a registered Canadian athletic association, a corporation providing low cost housing for the aged, a Canadian municipality, the UN and its agencies, some universities outside of Canada, a charity outside of Canada to which Canada has made a recent gift, Her Majesty in right of Canada or a Province. For the Kitimat Community Foundation the following criteria are also applied:
- Be a BC Registered Charitable Organization
- Carry out its mandate within the District of Kitimat and/or Kitamaat Village, B.C.
- Not transfer the funds or assets purchased with grant funds to another agency or society.

100% of the funding must benefit Kitimat/Kitamaat Village and not be transferred to any other society, agency or branch. If the receiving organization is not directly administered in Kitimat, the application must clearly declare and agree the funding will be spent on services/equipment and will remain in Kitimat for the benefit of those living in Kitimat or Kitamaat Village.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications for current year funding may be submitted between January 1st and 31st of each year – the deadline for applications being January 31st.

Applicants will be notified in writing no later than March 13, 2020 on the success or denial of their application. Disbursement of funds will be upon receipt of a detailed expense report for prior year’s grant, if applicable, or March 31st, whichever is later (template will be provided). KCF reserves the right to request receipts for funds granted up to 7 years.

It is important to acknowledge the KCF Board is committed to recognizing the history of ACT funding in the community and supporting those historically funded by the Aluminum City Telethon (ACT). Participation in the production of the telethon will be considered when evaluating grant applications. It is encouraged that participation should be proportionate to the amount of funding requested when possible. When the value of the requests is greater than the funds available the board will review the grants given to the previous years’ recipients and determine a fair and equitable distribution for the current year’s available funding.

Extraordinary Requests: In exceptional circumstances, applications for additional funds may be available outside of the
normal funding period. The request will be considered at either the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Foundation Board of Directors, or by special meeting called to deal with the application.
