Vancouver Foundation is proud to announce the expansion of the Neighbourhood Small Grants program into two new communities through co-funding partnerships with Clayoquot Biosphere Trust and Victoria Foundation.
We are actively exploring ways to bring the Neighbourhood Small Grants program to new communities. By entering into co-funding partnerships with other community foundations, we are making Neighbourhood Small Grants available to even more people across BC.
Neighbourhood Small Grants applications for Clayoquot Sound and Victoria (Hillside-Quadra) are now open.
The deadline for applications has been extended to Tuesday October 20, 2015 in Victoria (Hillside-Quadra) only.
Residents in Clayoquot Sound and Victoria (Hillside-Quadra) can apply for a small grant of up to $500 to bring people together and build community in their neighbourhood.
Find out more about how Neighbourhood Small Grants work.
