CFNKLS distributes grants each Spring to registered charities in the North Kootenay Lake region (Kaslo and Area D).  

If your organization is not a registered charity, you can seek to partner with one of the existing charities in the region. A non-registered charity can also be sponsored by a qualified donee which includes schools, churches, municipalities, and provincial organizations.

You can find a list of eligible institutions here: Registered Charities Kaslo & Area D, updated February 2023



Please note that grants will be made to the registered charity and that they are responsible for the funds.  Your proposed activities need to fit within the mandate of the sponsoring organization and both organizations need to understand their responsibilities under this arrangement.  More information about grantee eligibility is available: Grant Eligibility Policy
