Community Prosperity Fund

New program launches to advance poverty reduction and social inclusion in Kamloops and the Thompson, Nicola and South Cariboo region.

BC Interior Community Foundation (BCICF) is thrilled to participate in the Community Prosperity Fund and we are now open for applications. The Community Prosperity Fund is a $25 million investment from the Government of B.C. that advances poverty reduction and social inclusion in local communities. The Government of B.C. recognizes that non-profits are vital to people and communities in B.C. They are important partners, often providing services to those made vulnerable in all corners of British Columbia. The Community Prosperity Fund will drive positive change in Kamloops and the surrounding region.

“The Community Prosperity Fund will be immensely beneficial for charities, non-profits and Indigenous-serving organizations in our region. We know these organizations improve our communities by advancing poverty reduction and social inclusion. If they thrive, we thrive. This means that this type of funding is essential for our community to grow and create communities where we all belong.” 

Announced on the inaugural B.C. Nonprofit Day, the Community Prosperity Fund is a unique funding structure that allows communities and organizations to decide how they use the funding. BCICF will ensure applications are reviewed at the local level. The Community Prosperity Fund also responds to what the community needs by creating space to implement the funding over up to three years and supporting both operational expenses and project delivery funding. This makes sure that non-profits can decide what would most benefit them and their communities.

Applications for the Community Prosperity Fund can be submitted until June 24, 2024. Charities, non-profit organizations and Indigenous-serving organizations whose work advances poverty reduction and social inclusion in local communities are encouraged to apply.
