Community Grants

About the program

The Community Grants program helps residents of West Vancouver by providing funding assistance to non-profit organizations offering programs and services residents need.

Funding non-profit community organizations let us meet several objectives:

  • support for a diverse infrastructure of community non-profit organizations and services that respond to a broad spectrum of needs and interests;
  • local government endorsement for non-profit community organizations and partners to better attract funding from senior levels of government, donors, and foundations;
  • seed money that allows quick responses to changing and/or unmet community needs and interests

The application forms below are for grants being considered by the District of West Vancouver. Applicants seeking grants from the City and/or District of North Vancouver must use forms found on those websites.
