How To Receive Grants 


Grants from Quesnel Community Foundation are intended to support projects that benefit local area residents, providing a service to the community or taking a new or innovative approach to needs and concerns within the North Cariboo region.  

We fund projects in the areas of Arts, Education,  Environment, Recreation and Social Programs - take a look at the Funded Projects page for details of what we have funded over our first 15 years of community investment.

Our 2017 Grants cycle is now closed, as of 5.00pm 13th January 2017 - we received Letters of Intent outlining 21 projects being worked on by local community groups, 17 of which are now working on their Applications. We also have two applications pending for the "Community Fund For Canada's 150th".

2017 is shaping up to be another great year!
