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.
