Shuswap Community Foundation announces availability of $350 grants

The Shuswap Community Foundation is launching a Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) program, available to anyone with a community-minded project.

Grant recipients are decided by resident advisory committees (RAC) made up of volunteers recruited from each participating community. Anyone wishing to get involved can do so through the Shuswap Community Foundation.
