 Our 2023 Grant cycle is now CLOSED!


The Quesnel Community Foundation funds projects through our Grant Cycle in the categories of Arts, Education, Environment, and Recreation/Social Programs. 

Grants from the Foundation are intended to support projects that benefit our local area and residents, provide a service to our community, or take a new, innovative approach in responding to a need or concern within the Quesnel, Lhtako Dene, and North Cariboo regions.  

In addition to our general Grant Application, there are currently two Field of Interest Grants established by donors in our community.  Please submit an application during our 2023 Grant Cycle if you feel you qualify for either one:  

 Holger Bauer Forest Safety Award - a Grant established for the purpose of aiding in forest safety, outdoor recreation, forest stewardship, and forest conservation.

 David Gibb Memorial Art Award - a Grant established for the purpose of supporting the practice of the arts by both groups and individuals in the Quesnel area.
