The Comox Valley Community Foundation announced the creation of a new grant opportunity for not-for-profit organizations in the Comox Valley.
The CVC Foundation has dedicated $10,000 this year (2016) to support professional development initiatives. Successful applications will be limited to a maximum grant of $2,000 per organization.
“Comox Valley not-for-profit organizations play an essential role in creating a better future for all in the Valley,” said CVC Foundation President Dr. Norman Carruthers. “We all benefit from the passion and talents of the many employees and volunteers who work tirelessly to make the Comox Valley better.”
The Comox Valley Community Foundation recognizes that many organization’s resources are stretched to the maximum. Often the most critical need they have is greater support and training for their staff and volunteers. The Foundation has dedicated these funds to help to address these requirements.
The Comox Valley Community Foundation has been assisting registered charities to acquire or upgrade critical capital resources for the past 20 years. This new CVC Foundation grant is designed to help them address the critical need to strengthen the skills and capabilities of their workers.
Applications will be accepted until March 31. Successful applicants will be announced in June.
Interested groups are encouraged to learn more about the criteria and application process at cvcfoundation.org. For further information, qualified not-for-profit organizations in the Comox Valley are invited to contact the Comox Valley Community Foundation by calling 250-338-8444 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
