Grant applications welcome in Castlegar

Community Foundation is eager to progress with its supportive mission

“The Community Foundation of Castlegar & District (CFCD) is very pleased to announce that it is now prepared to receive grant applications from the community,” states President Bob Jackson.

Check our website for application details: communityfoundationofcastlegar.org/grants.

Application details and forms are available on the website. There is also a helpful application guide that includes information about the Canada Revenue Agency rules that state who can receive funds.

The amount of money available for grants this year is not large, but as the years go by, we intend it to grow.  Everybody can help by contributing to the Foundation’s community fund.  This is a permanent invested fund that generates interest and produces the dollars that are given back to successful applicants in the community in an annual granting process.  Donors will receive tax receipts.

The deadline for submitting applications is May 16. They can be emailed to rsjjackson@shaw.ca as attachments, or sent by Canada Post to P.O. Box 3725, Castlegar V1N 3W4.  The granting committee will review applications and it is hoped that the successful applicants will be announced at the CFCD AGM on June 12.

The CFCD is a Canada Revenue Agency registered charity, and a member of the Community Foundations of Canada (www.cfc-fcc.ca).

“We look forward to help build a healthy community”, states Jackson, “which includes personal, social, educational, recreational and cultural health in the City of Castlegar and Electoral Areas I and J of the Regional District of Central Kootenay.”
