Time for groups to apply for Kelowna social development grants

Local non-profit groups invited to learn how to apply for grants.

Is your non-profit organization looking for a grant from the City of Kelowna?

In 2013, the Central Okanagan Foundation will administer $80,000 in community social development grants and $22,000 in grants to address the sexual exploitation of youth on behalf of the City of Kelowna and the foundation is encouraging registered non-profit organizations interested in applying for community social development grants to attend an information session Jan. 17 at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

The sessopn, which starts at at 1:30 p.m. and will be held in the Pacific Safety Products boardroom at the RCA, will cover eligibility requirements and the application process. Program updates that could impact the application process and evaluation will be reviewed.

To register, contact Cheryl Miller, grants manager for the Central Okanagan Foundation at cheryl@centralokanaganfoundation.org or call 250-861-6160.

Community social development grants assist registered, non-profit societies and community organizations in the delivery of innovative, prevention-oriented programs designed to improve the quality of life for residents in Kelowna.

Grants to address the sexual exploitation of youth fund programs that directly address sexual exploitation issues for those under 19 years of age in the city.
