Grants of up to $5,000 to British Columbia nonprofits in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor for programs and grassroots initiatives that benefit the region's youth in the areas of education, health, and the environment through the power of technology.

Funding for projects, which can include operating and capital costs directly associated with the program, is intended to help transform healthcare through innovative technologies, utilize the internet to empower academic excellence in local schools, and promote a better environment for animals and their habitats.

Programs are chosen that best meet the TELUS funding guidelines and that clearly demonstrate the following criteria:
- Focus on youth
- Aligns with the funding source's interest in either health, education or the environment
- Demonstrates technological innovation in program delivery
- Defines and measures social outcomes

The maximum investment the Community Action Team will consider is $5,000.

Funding is available only for single-year programs (no multi-year programs).

- TELUS will only support organizations registered by the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) as having charitable status.
- Operating and capital costs directly associated with program delivery are eligible for support, including salaries or space dedicated to a program. Ineligible operating costs are those which support the charity as a whole including utilities and overhead salaries.
- 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.

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