About Our Grants
Providing resources to programs and services to improve the quality of life in the Shuswap.
Since 1994, the Shuswap Community Foundation has built a capital fund of over $12 million through our over 190 endowed funds that support a wide range of community projects, programs, and initiatives. Through these funds, donors shape the future of our community by creating a sustainable source of funding for the causes that are close to their hearts.
Without the support of these generous donors, SCF would not be able to create lasting legacies across the Shuswap.
The Shuswap Community Foundation supports community building through philanthropy, and our twice-yearly grant cycles are a powerful way to do that. Every year, we offer charities and non-profits in the Shuswap opportunities to access grant funding that supports community improvement in the arts and culture, health and wellness, human services, recreation, sport, education, and environmental sectors.
With these grants, we empower our non-profit partners to build a vibrant and healthy communities and deliver programs and services that benefit the entire Shuswap.
How Grants Are Made
Our grant programs are only possible because of the generous individuals, organizations, and businesses who have donated to one of our many funds. We invest these endowed funds and use those earnings to provide grants, offering our donors a chance to shape the future of our community by supporting a broad spectrum of local non-profit organizations and projects.
