Estimated Size of Grant:

CFNKLS rarely gives grants in excess of $4,000. Special projects requiring greater funding may also be considered, if funds permit, but such applications should first be discussed with CFNKLS in advance of the application deadline.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

CFNKLS, as an arm of the Osprey Community Foundation, can only provide grants to Registered Charities and other Qualified Donees.

CFNKLS distributes grants to registered charities in the North Kootenay Lake region (Kaslo and Area D).

If your organization is not a registered charity, you can seek to partner with one of the existing charities in the region. These include most churches and local academic institutions. A non-registered charity can also be sponsored by a qualified donee which includes schools, churches, and provincial organizations. You can find a list of eligible institutions here:

If you are not a registered charity or qualified donee you will need to include a copy of your written agreement with the charity or qualified donee.
