The Community Foundation of Castlegar and District is now receiving grant applications from the community.

“This is our second year of granting and we look forward to giving back to the community,” said president Brian Miller.

For grant application details and forms, go to communityfoundationofcastlegar.org.  There is also an application guide that includes information about Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) 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, the foundation hopes to grow its community fund, Miller said. 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.

Everybody can help by donating to the foundation. Donors will receive tax receipts.

The deadline for submitting applications is May 31. They can be emailed to robertah@telus.net as attachments, or mailed to Box 3725, Castlegar, V1N 3W4. The granting committee will review applications and the successful applicants will be contacted at the end of June.

The Community Foundation of Castlegar and District is a CRA registered charity and a member of the Community Foundations of Canada (cfc-fcc.ca).

“We look forward to help build a healthy community,” said Miller, “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.”
