PLEASE NOTE:  Our Spring Neighbourhood Small Grants are now CLOSED.  Please check back soon to see successful grant applicants.

We’re happy to announce that Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants are back for Vancouver Island and Gulf Island communities in 2021, including Campbell River. Like last year, we are providing small grants of up to $500 for projects that connect communities socially, or that share skills and talents — whether physically distanced or online. And yes, a grant means you don’t need to pay back this funding — no matter the outcome.  

With the great participation in response to the pandemic last year, we can’t wait to see the projects you dream up to help our communities stay connected and resilient. Remember, the 2021 grant program will continue to be available to anyone who lives on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, so spread the word! ​​​​​

Please know we are here to help you with ideas and your application.  Just email info@crfoundation.ca.


Wondering what kind of projects are eligible? Visit our Eligibility and FAQ page. Remember that you may ask for $350 to be allocated for honorariums to anyone who contributes skills or knowledge as part of your project, including yourself.

For inspiration, check out some of the past projects from across BC in 2020.

Once you are ready to apply, you can submit your project via our online application.

We are here to help you generate ideas and apply!

    We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

    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.
