Grants of up to $4,000 to British Columbia registered charities and qualified donees in eligible locations for activities that benefit local communities. Funding is intended to support programs and projects in areas such as arts, culture, and heritage; children, youth, and families; the environment; and seniors. Funded activities must serve the North Kootenay Lake region (Kaslo and Area D).
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: https://nklcommunityfund.files.wordpress.com/2023/02/2023-registered-charities-list.pdf
Local Not-For-Profit volunteer groups, which are not themselves registered charities, do require one of the many local qualified donees to overview and administrate all of the funds that CFNKLS grants for community projects.
- CFNKLS rarely gives grants in excess of $4,000.
- Grant applications that request more than these guideline amounts should provide an explanation as to why a greater support for administration costs is justified for this application.
