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.

Application Details

This year’s community enrichment grants online application will be available as of August 4th, 2017.

Granting Workshop – Sept 14th 6:30-8:00 p.m. & Sept 28th 1:00-2:30

We want to help you create a successful application.  Please bring any questions you may have to this workshop and we will be happy to answer your questions.  We added one more workshop on September 28th at 1:00 at our office! Please come by with any questions you have.

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.

 Final Reporting

All 2017 grant recipients are required to submit a final report by September 15, 2017.  This year we are asking all grant recipients to submit at least one quality photo (16 MB maximum) of your project.  To assist you with preparing your final report, here is a copy of the final report form; however, we will only accept online final reports through the link below.
