Community Enrichment Grants

Enriching lives in the Comox Valley on an on-going basis is what we do.  As a result, community capacity building is at the heart of our Community Enrichment Grants program. The Comox Valley Community Foundation continues to work with community partners to build a vibrant, caring community for all in the Comox Valley.

Announcement of Grant Recipients

All grant applicants will be informed by letter in mid-December as to whether they are successful and if so, the amount of their grant.  Successful applicants will be invited to receive their grants at our annual Community Enrichment Awards on February 1, 2018. The decision of the CVCF Board will be final.

Note that projects are expected to be completed within eight months of the receipt of the grant cheque. If the project changes from what is proposed in your application, or cannot be completed within this time frame, please contact the Community Foundation immediately.  The CVCF Board is likely to approve of the change or delay if it still meets the spirit of the original application.
