Comox Valley Community Foundation
Grants to British Columbia registered charities and qualified donees in eligible locations to address community needs. Funding may be requested for operational support in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Additionally, grant funds may be used to support projects, programs, and services that enrich the community. The project or organization (for Operational Requirements requests) must be located within the defined geographic boundaries of School District 71. Organizations located outside the Comox Valley delivering programs must clearly demonstrate how all funds will remain within the Comox Valley.

There is no maximum limit on the amount of funds organizations may request; however, the Foundation strongly encourages applicants to keep their requests reasonable. Funding is limited and there are many vital organizations within the community applying for funds. For information, the largest grant issued last year was $23,556, while most grants were under $10,000.
Note that projects are expected to be completed within eight months of the receipt of the grant check. If the project changes from what is proposed in your application, or cannot be completed within this time frame, please contact the Community Foundation immediately. The CVCF Board is likely to approve of the change or delay if it still meets the spirit of the original application.
