Grants of up to $5,000 to British Columbia registered charities for programs that benefit youth and involve technology and/or social innovation in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor.

GrantWatch ID#: 180946

Estimated Size of Grant:

TELUS Community Action Teams will consider requests for funding up to $5,000.

Term of Contract:

The Foundation only considers single-year requests.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Charities must be registered with the Canada Revenue Agency as a Canadian registered charity or qualified donee to apply for funding.

Organizations and programs that would be considered ineligible for a Community Board and Community Action Team donation:
- Religious or sectarian organizations (except where they represent non-denominational community and social support services), advocacy and special interest groups
- In-kind donations such as local or long-distance telephone services, or requests for reduced rates on telecommunication rates or services
- Retroactive requests or events and activities that take place outside of Canada
- Funding for individuals or competitive sports teams, goodwill advertising, travel expenses, field trips, tours, ticket purchases, funding to attend conferences or seminars, workshops, beauty pageants

Community foundations are eligible for funding only if a specific program managed by the foundation fits within existing funding guidelines. Support for a capital campaign or general donation is outside of funding guidelines and therefore ineligible

Ineligible operating costs are those which support the charity as a whole including utilities and overhead salaries.

Pre-Application Information:

Charities can apply once a year in each city.

Charities can apply for a second consecutive year of funding if:
