Comox Valley Community Foundation grant application window opens Aug. 1

Registered local charities and non-profit organizations are invited to submit applications for the Comox Valley Community Foundation’s Community Enrichment and Professional Development Grants beginning Aug. 1. Applications will be accepted until Sept. 27.

To assist organizations in preparing their applications, two workshops will be held:

• Thursday, Aug. 8, 3:30–4:30 p.m., Comox Community Centre (1855 Noel Ave.)

• Monday, Aug. 19, 3:30–4:30 p.m., Courtenay Museum (207 – 4th St.)

Community Enrichment Grants support projects and programs that are innovative and address demonstrated need in the Comox Valley.

Professional Development Grants assist local non-profits to access training and professional growth opportunities for staff and volunteers, which ultimately builds organizational capacity and strengthens the community. Complete details on both granting opportunities, including criteria and eligibility requirements, are available on the CVCF website at www.cvcfoundation.org.

The Community Foundation has invested in a new, user-friendly grants management software system to streamline the grants process. The new CVCF grants portal will allow applicants to access a personalized dashboard from which they may apply for grants, receive status updates, and complete necessary follow-up. Plan to attend a workshop for an overview of the new system. For those unable to attend a workshop, a user guide will be available on the CVCF website: www.cvcfoundation.org
