Apply for Grants

We now have two types of Grants:

1.) Neighbourhod Small Grants Initiative is available to any group or individual interested in enhancing their community or neighbourhood. There is still a small amount of funds left!

2.) 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.

Grant applications for up to $4,000 will be considered. Special projects requiring greater funding may also be considered, if funds permit, but such applications should first be discussed with CFNKLS in advance of the application deadline.

Our deadline for applications in 2020 is Friday, April 24, 2020.

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.  A non-registered charity can also be sponsored by a qualified donee which includes schools, churches, and provincial organizations. You can find a list of eligible institutions here:

*** After obtaining and using your grant, it is MANDATORY that you report results with this form:  Project Report. Please remember to include details of how your money was spent.

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
