Apply for an Annual Foundation Grant
Through its Community Fund Program, the Parksville Qualicum Community Foundation supports initiatives designed to improve the quality of life for residents within BC School District 69, also known as Oceanside.
We are receiving applications from February 15th - March 31st. During the COVID-19 health crisis, we will also consider emergency response projects.
Grants up to $4000 are made to organizations that are registered as Charities with Canada Revenue Agency, or to organizations that are sponsored by a registered charity.
Organizations/groups seeking funds must demonstrate that they have a strong and committed group of volunteers and an effective management of resources. Preference is given to projects that:
- Promote volunteer participation
- Do not duplicate services provided by other organizations
- Promote youth activities
- Promote cooperation between groups
- Enhance community self-sufficiency
- Build on current community strengths to meet locally identified needs
- Innovative activities that might not happen without the Foundation’s support
Grants are awarded on an annual basis in May.
