Coquitlam Builders’ Fund
The Foundation established the Coquitlam Builders' Fund in October 1999 with monies provided through a gift from the Coquitlam Builder's Trust Fund.
The charitable purposes of the fund include fostering, promoting and increasing public appreciation of, and public interest in, the fine arts, the performing arts and the literary arts solely in the City of Coquitlam. Grants or other forms of financial assistance may be provided to the City of Coquitlam and any charity, holding or having an interest in property in the City that is registered under the Income Tax Act. Preference will be given to assisting the City or charity in the construction, provision, acquisition, improvement or maintenance of an arts facility which is or is to be open to the general public, operated on a not-for-profit basis, located in the City and designed or used to promote public interest in, and public appreciation of, the fine arts, performing arts or the literary arts or the creation or acquisition of artistic or literary works for public display.
The Foundation also established this open fund in 1996. Income from this fund can be used to help eligible organizations provide cultural services. The latter include theatre, music, dance, library and fine arts. Multicultural initiatives can also be considered under the umbrella of this Fund.
