Applications now being accepted for Comox Valley Community Foundation Community Enrichment Grants

The Comox Valley Community Foundation Community Enrichment Grants application window has opened.

Applications from local charities and non-profits will be accepted until Sept. 24.

Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances facing charities and not-for-profit organizations serving the community, the CVCF board of directors has agreed to fund “core operating costs” for 2020/2021.

“This is a departure from prior years, but having heard from local non-profits and charities about the impact COVID-19 has had and continues to have on their operations and their ability to raise funds through donations, fundraising events and ancillary operations, we felt this was the right thing to do,” said Matt Beckett, president of the Comox Valley Community Foundation.

“Organizations may choose to apply for a grant in support of existing or new programming, facility renovations, equipment purchases or needed professional development in addition to operations funding. However, organizations are limited to only one application, so it should be their most urgent need.”

Detailed information regarding Community Enrichment Grants as well as the link to the application is available from the foundation’s website at https://bit.ly/3jc0ikg
