Community project grants

Thank you for your interest

Due to an increased need for community support this year, all community project grant applications received late fall and onwards will be deferred for review until the beginning of 2016. We thank the community groups who have applied for their understanding and have already contacted those who submitted requests. We are excited for the new opportunities 2016 will bring for us to continue to offer support for community projects and initiatives.

At Vancity, we make you good money by putting money to good.

How to apply

Grants of up to $15,000 are available for initiatives that focus on the funding priorities outlined above. Please note that while our overall granting budgets have not changed for 2015, Vancity is focusing more of our Shared Success grant dollars on a number of highly aligned strategic priorities during the upcoming calendar year. Due to these commitments, we will be looking to fund projects and programs that have a strong alignment to the above noted priorities and provide the greatest impact in local communities.

Ideally your grant application will demonstrate how your organization or initiative works in two or more of these areas and/or supports marginalized people (including Aboriginal communities, immigrants, refugees and people with low incomes).

All grant recipients are asked to submit a final report 30 days after the completion of the project/program.
