Grants of up to $15,000 to North Shore, British Columbia nonprofit organizations for events, projects, programs, and capital support that will improve the quality of life for residents. Funding is intended for initiatives that will reduce social, economic, or physical disadvantage. For this grant program, the North Shore includes the District of North Vancouver, the City of North Vancouver, and the District of West Vancouver.

Eligible expenses include:
- Special projects and events: e.g. hosting a workshop or producing resource material.
- Operating costs: e.g. ongoing operating costs such as rent, utilities, fixed costs.
- New projects: e.g. a new program to serve a particular group. A program typically has distinct resources committed to the operation of that specific program, such as staff costs and other expenses related to that program.
- Capital costs: e.g. the purchase of office equipment. NOTE: the Districts of North and West Vancouver do not fund capital costs.
