Make your community stronger and more engaged!
The 2014 Neighbourhood Small Grants program is now open and we’re looking for your applications by Monday, April 7, 2014 at 5pm.
Our program supports residents like you who have small but powerful ideas to bring people together and make your community vibrant and engaged. Through the support of a Neighbourhood Small Grant (ranging from $50 to $1,000), you can tap into your creativity and leadership to develop projects that meet the needs of your community.
Think you’ve got a great idea? There are two granting streams available – Neighbourhood Small Grants and Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants.
Neighbourhood Small Grants is available in 10 communities across the Lower Mainland. The grants help residents by encouraging them to come up with their own ideas – workshops, book exchanges or block parties – to strengthen and build vital connections in their own community. Vancouver Foundation then funds those ideas so you can make them reality.
Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants are part of the Greenest City Fund, a Vancouver Foundation partnership with the City of Vancouver to make Vancouver the greenest city in the world by 2020. If you’re a resident of Vancouver and have a project idea that has a green impact, apply for a Greenest City grant. From ideas like introducing composting in your office to growing local food to planting trees, the green possibilities are endless!
