Currently, the Foundation will fund up to $600 of eligible costs. However, the Foundation may be able to source or leverage other funds to contribute to your project if eligible costs exceed $600.
Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations which hold charitable registration with Revenue Canada or are sponsored by an organization with charitable registration.
Grants will not normally be awarded for operation requirements, or to rescue an organization from a financial deficit situation; or to religious organizations, unless the community-at-large will benefit significantly; or to individuals (except scholarships); or to promote political, religious, moral or ethical philosophies; or for purposes which may be deemed discriminatory.
Please note that applications must be received in advance of the event: projects are not supported retroactively. If the event or project occurs prior to the application deadline date, the application will not be reviewed. Preference will be given to new project/programs. Groups may receive only one grant per calendar year. Individuals are not eligible for funding.
Please note that grant amounts will not exceed one-third of the projects total cost.
Grants are awarded by the BC Interior Community Foundation twice a year, April 1st and October 1st.
