Community Granting

One of our top priorities as a community foundation is to provide financial support to our community. This can take a number of forms. Most of the time community granting is funds that goes directly to organizations that are doing the work to improve the lives of those within our community.

The Grants in Aid is a program of the Strathcona Regional District. The Community Foundation works with a team of jurors and the current Regional Director to disperse up to $25,000 annually towards supporting the Cortes Island nonprofits and charities to create meaningful projects in the community.
