Grants of up to $2,000 and grants of up to $5,000 to British Columbia individuals, groups, and nonprofit arts and culture organizations in eligible regions to benefit the local community. Funding is intended for organizations that serve local residents and for arts and culture events that showcase local artists. Proposals must benefit the city of White Rock.

There are two grant categories:

  • General Community Grants: Annually, City Council awards a limited amount of funds to recipients doing work in the community that either benefit the residents of the City or brings favorable publicity to the City, thereby raising civic pride and awareness.
  • New or Expanded Arts and Culture Grants: The Arts and Culture Project Grant provides funding to eligible organizations that initiate a new arts festival, celebration, or event in the community. The intent of the grant is to provide seed money to support local artists, arts and culture organizations and to promote the spirit of celebration in White Rock.
