Charities and non-profit social groups have until Feb 26 to get their grant applications in to the Central Okanagan Foundation.

This year, the Central Okanagan Foundation will administer $102,000 in community social development grants on behalf of the City of Kelowna.

And local charities and non-profit groiups looking for money to help fund their innovative, prevention-oriented programs are encouraged to apply for grants under the program.

“These grants are an important source of funding for a number of organizations,” said Louise Roberts, manager of community  and neighbourhood services with the City of Kelowna.

“The grants help ensure the community can continue to benefit from the diversity of services, programs and amenities provided by these organizations.”
