Apply for Grants

CFNKLS distributes grants each Spring to registered charities in the North Kootenay Lake region (Kaslo and Area D).  On this page you will find information and links to our granting requirements, application forms and timelines.

We usually make small grants of  between $500 and $1,500.  Our deadline for applications this year is Friday, 28 April 2017.

If you are interested to apply for a grant, first read  A Friendly Guide to a Successful Application and  CFNKLS Granting Guidelines 2017

Then complete an application form:   2017 Grant Application

Or MS Word version of form: 2017 Grant Application

2017 grants will include an annual student bursary.  Separate applications for the McKinnon Family Fund student bursary are available here: McKinnon 2017

Grants are also available through the Canada 150 Grants Program.

Completed applications should be submitted by email to Honora <> or by mail with all accompanying documentation to CFNKLS, c/o Box 661, Kaslo, BC, V0G 1M0

If your organisation is not a registered charity, you can seek to partner with one of the existing charities in the region.  These include most churches and local academic institutions.  You can find a list of eligible institutions here: Registered Charities Kaslo & Area D 2014

After obtaining and using your grant you will need to report results with this form:  Project Report Form

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.
