Each year, the Foundation awards more than $150,000 in grants to local charities. Our grant recipients contribute to our community in so many ways. Check out a recent project completed by the Gibsons & Area Public Library in Stories to Tell. Stay tuned over time as we post more submissions from organizations all over the Coast.
The Foundation began awarding grants in 2005. As of 2018, nearly $1.5 Million has helped to fund more than 200 important programs and projects in our community. On June 20, 2018, past grant recipients posed with a cheque for $1,000,000 (left), symbolic of this significant achievement.
Granting is one of the two core parts of our mission. The other is building a pool of capital, the earnings from which are a source of grants. The funds available for granting are a direct result of the capital investment made in previous years.
