The BC Interior Community Foundation (BCICF) is accepting online applications from qualified charitable organizations (or sponsored community groups/not-for-profits), providing programming, services or projects for vulnerable Seniors in the Thompson-Nicola/South Cariboo region.
The maximum award amount per applicant organization will be $5,000 (Five Thousand dollars). There is a total of $25,000 in funding available in our region; this funding comes from the Kamloops Senior Citizens Housing Society Fund held at the BC Interior Community Foundation. This fund was created in 2010 to support Seniors Projects/Programs in our region that show a commitment to building community capacity and support a significant number of beneficiaries. Preference will be given to low-income senior needs where possible and practical.
Please use the “Community Project Grants” Application form to apply online – disregard any budgetary caps that may be listed on the form as this grant intake is separate from the regular Community Project Grant, which has a cap of $2500; this intake is up to $5000 per project/organization. Applications can be accessed at: www.bcicf.ca/online-application
All grant recipients are required to submit a final report upon completion of their project (within 90 days). Failure to submit a final report may impact subsequent applications. You can find the fillable PDF here – https://www.bcicf.ca/grant-reporting/
