About the Oceanside Prosperity Fund

In partnership with Vancouver Foundation, the Oceanside Prosperity Fund is part of a $25 million investment from the Government of B.C. that advances poverty reduction and social inclusion. This fund is part of the Government of B.C.’s commitment to supporting the non-profit sector and empowering local communities to make local decisions. 

The Oceanside Prosperity Fund will provide up to three years of funding for the ongoing work of local community service organizations.

Eligibility

Eligible organizations must meet the following criteria:

  • You support communities in Oceanside, British Columbia;
  • You are a charity, a non-profit organization, or an Indigenous-serving organization. See page 15 of the Application Guide for definitions.
  • You have not received funding from the Lighthouse Organizations Fund* or Recovery & Resiliency Fund or received a 2023 LEVEL BIPOC Grant.
    • *Organizations who applied to Lighthouse Organizations Fund can also apply to the Community Prosperity Fund (CPF) as applications are still under review. If your organization receives a grant from the Lighthouse Organizations Fund, our team will withdraw your CPF application to provide an equitable opportunity for other organizations to access funding.

 

Interested applicants are encouraged to review the Application Guide to understand the eligible activities and expenses funded.

Funds Can Support

  1. Fund operational expenses that contribute to your organization’s long-term resiliency (e.g., investment in digital infrastructure, support for staff training, developing organizational strategies and policies, salaries, rent, and other organizational costs) or;
  2. Project delivery funding that addresses community needs. Participating organizations have up to three years for activities, providing space to implement the funding over time and in a way that works best. If you only need 1 or 2 years for the project, that works too.

Organizations should submit their application with the attached fillable form and send to PQCF:

  1. Review all applicant resources and program details before applying.
  2. Email (or mail) PQCF your completed application form by July 30, 2024.
