The Coquitlam Foundation is proud of its 20-year history of encouraging and supporting creative, targeted philanthropy that builds a vibrant, sustainable, and healthy community. Our vision for the City of Coquitlam is a community where quality of life is enhanced by residents and organizations creating lasting legacies and building endowment funds that benefit a broad range of eligible organizations.
We are pleased to make available grant funds to organizations whose applied projects specifically benefit the residents of the City of Coquitlam. The Coquitlam Foundation and/or private donors have established funds to support specific areas of interest. Submissions in these categories are invited but awards will not necessarily be made in every category every year.
Grants may be considered in the following areas of interest:
Grants are generated by different funds held by the Foundation for the above purposes. Larger funds may enable for more grant monies in a given category. Generally, the maximum available to one organization will be $3,500. Applicants are encouraged to contact our Executive Director to enquire about funds available for the current year. Applicants must be registered charities or partnered with a registered charity who can accept the funds on behalf of the project. To share funds as widely as possible within our community, an organization may be granted an award for two years in a row, but then are asked to wait a year before applying again.
Applications are reviewed by a volunteer, citizen-based committee appointed by the Coquitlam Foundation. Final decisions are ratified by the volunteer Board of Directors of the Coquitlam Foundation. Successful applicants will be notified in May and invited to attend the Coquitlam Foundation Awards Celebration Evening at the Evergreen Cultural Centre on June 4, 2013.
The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2013.
