Apply for a Grant

Apply Online

Shuswap Community Foundation accepts online Grant Applications via DonorPerfect, a secure platform for submitting the information we require in order to process and facilitate your grant application.

Links to all of our Online Forms can be found below. Each form will open in a new window. For security reasons, forms may timeout after a period of inactivity. Should a form timeout, simply refresh the browser window to start over.

SCF staff is available Monday to Friday, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM, to assist you with any questions. Please call our office at 250-832-5428 or email info@shuswapfoundation.ca.
