Central Okanagan Foundation Grants

Application Deadline: May 2, 2022 3:30pm

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)


Program Update: In 2023 the Central Okanagan Foundation will separate the multi-year operating and project grant intakes.

Spring 2023: Multi-year Operating Grants only

Fall 2023: Project Grants only


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.
