Grants to British Columbia nonprofit organizations and charities to offset facility rental fees for community events and meetings in eligible regions. Consideration will be given to projects that benefit the overall community and support recreational activities at the local community level. Projects must take place in White Valley.

White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture provides financial grants to offset facility rental fees for community groups for two purposes:

  1. To support local, not-for-profit community organizations that are operating community events that are organized primarily for the benefit and enjoyment of local residents and are accessible to the public with free or low-cost activities, and are located within White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture facilities;
  2. To support local, not-for-profit community organizations that provide a benefit to the community, through grants to offset facility fees associated with the use of the White Valley Community Centre Meeting Room for the organization’s administrative meetings.

Consideration will be given to projects that include all of the following:

  • The applicant must be a White Valley group or organization.
  • The project takes place within facilities under the jurisdiction of White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee.
  • The organization provides support for recreational activities at the local community level.

Pre-Application Information:

Application deadline: September 30, 2022, at 4:30 p.m. (for events taking place between January 1 and December 31 of the following year).

All applicants, other than those listed as a Standing Application, must submit a complete application by the deadline for their event or organization meetings, being:
- September 30th of the previous year for events or meetings falling between January 1st and December 31st.
- April 30th of the same year for events or meetings falling between June 30th and December 31st.
For clarity, there are two application deadlines for events/meetings that will take place between May 30th and December 31st, however funding will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis assuming all other considerations are equal. This means that funding may be fully allocated by the April 30th deadline.

Applicants will be advised of the result of their application, including the amount and any conditions of approved funds, within four months of the application deadline.

Grants to offset facility rental fees will generally be distributed by a credit applied against the rental fee. Cash grants will only occur where the organization has pre-paid the rental fee.
