The Campbell River Search and Rescue was one of seven organizations to receive a grant from the Foundation in 2012.

It is granting time again for the foundation. This year, they are looking for more great projects to support. With $30,000 in funds available to distribute, the foundation is excited to announce the 2013 Granting Cycle for area non-profits.

“We are pleased to once again receive requests from non-profits in our area.” Says, foundation chair, Shannan Brown. “It is an exciting time as we await the grant applications. This is the best part of what we do, being a catalyst for great community work.”

If your non-profit is interested in applying for a grant, Brown asks that you review the information on the Foundation’s website at www.crfoundation.ca. If your organization and project or initiative meet the criteria make sure to apply. The deadline for 2013 applications is noon, Friday, April 19.

This year’s community grants will be distributed in May following final approval of the Board. The Foundation may reach its next milestone in May, to have granted over $150,000 back to our community since its inception in 1992.
