Community Grants

For information regarding the COVID-19 Impact Assistance Grants, please visit westvancouver.ca/covid-grants.


 

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 lets 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 deadline for all 2021 community grant submissions was Sunday, January 31, 2021. Please check back next year for information on community grants available in the following categories:

  • Arts, Culture & Heritage Grants
  • Community & Social Services Grants
  • Community Vitality & Environment Grant
