PORT MOODY FOUNDATION 2017 GRANT APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

The Port Moody Foundation is accepting applications for the 2017 granting season.

The Foundation seeks Expressions of Interest (EOI) from eligible registered charity organizations needing financial support in 2017 for projects and programs that will benefit Port Moody and its community members. Grants of $500 to $2000 may be given. 

In 2016 the Port Moody Foundation provided some $6,000 in funding grants to help local registered charities fulfill their goals of serving the community.

“Non-profit charity organizations provide the backbone that builds environmentally, culturally, and socially sustainable communities.” Port Moody Foundation president Robert Simons says. “We are pleased that through our annual grant program we can assist these organizations in their work to enrich our community. 

Expressions of Interest should be limited to one page and outline a project or program that fits with the funding areas identified in the Foundation’s mission: social, cultural, ecological and recreational.
