Do you have an idea that connects people socially or
helps them share skills or talents with each other?
If you have an idea to create community and cultural connections in Campbell River, Neighbourhood Small Grants can help bring your project to life with grants from $50–$500.
Share your skills, your language, your music, your art, your hobbies! Share your knowledge from elders to youth and from youth to elders and across all generations and across all cultures. The possibilities of connections are endless!

We have chosen to invest in the Campbell River Community Foundation because it is a way of giving back to the community and a continuing future legacy in which the funds are well managed and not heavy in administration fees. Local organizations in need are well served by this growing Foundation.
