The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies is launching their 2021 grant application process.

Between January 1, 2021 and February 15, 2021, eligible non-profit organizations are invited to apply for grants from our Elkford Community Fund – CFKR, Sparwood Community Fund – CFKR, and Fernie Community Fund – CFKR.

Interested non-profits are invited to visit to review and download CFKR’s 2021 grant application guidelines and fillable pdf application form.

Their permanently invested endowment funds continue to grow, and, as a result, their annual granting continues to grow as well!

To be eligible to apply, an organization must be a CRA qualified donee, such as a registered charity, or, if the organization is not a qualified donee, enter into an agreement with a qualified donee. Grant applications need to clearly demonstrate a direct, positive benefit to local residents.

Most CFKR annual grants range from a few hundred dollars up to $1500 and support local non-profits in making communities even better places to live, work, and play. From 2004 to 2020, the CFKR has given over $500,000 to local projects and programs.

The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies (CFKR) takes a broad and inclusive view of what a community is and provides grants to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives, including:
– Animal Welfare
– Arts, Culture, and Heritage
– Education
– Environment
– Mental Health and Addictions
– Outdoor Recreation, Physical Activity, and Sports
– Seniors’ Programs
– Social/Health Services
