Did you know Shuswap Community Foundation now has two granting cycles, one in the spring and one in the summer? And that more than $118,000 was awarded in non-agency grants to eligible charities in the Shuswap this year?
“We want to encourage charitable groups and organizations throughout the Shuswap to take advantage of what we have to offer,” says SCF Grant Committee Chairperson Deborah Chapman. “By having both a spring and a summer grant cycle we can help them gain access to funding at a time that best suits their spending cycle requirements.”
Many smaller charities do not have a Canada Revenue Agency charitable status registration number necessary to qualify for funding by SCF. However, several organizations in the Shuswap do, and these organizations can host grant applications from those smaller charities.

Grant applications for the spring cycle will be accepted until January 31, 2016.
