Central Okanagan Foundation Grants

The funds for the Central Okanagan Foundation's granting program come from the investment income earned on our Community Endowment Fund. We have two types of grants available to registered charities in the Central Okanagan: project and multi-year.

May 1st each year

  • Project Grants (up to 12 months)
  • Multi-Year Grants (1-3 years)

October 1st each year

  • Project Grants (up to 12 months)

The funds are discretionary and a volunteer committee decides who receives funding based on the applications.

A registered charity can only apply once in a 12-month period. All previous granting decisions are taken into account when grant applications are reviewed.
