From one coast to the other, Fundtracker can help you identify funding opportunities across Canada!  After the Maritimes and Ontario, we’ve skipped over the middle of the country to share some rapidly approaching deadlines in BC.

The Vancouver Foundation is one of the largest community foundations in Canada. Since 1943, they have funded hundreds of innovative projects – large and small – in areas such as arts and culture, education, children and youth issues, environment, animal welfare, community health, and social development.  In the last few years, they have given out more than 30 million dollars a year mostly to non-profits in BC. The youth philanthropy and the youth homelessness programs are accepting letters of intent till September 13th and the Animal Welfare Grant is open till the 27th. Fundtracker users can keep track of these deadlines through our saved funders feature.

The Bulkley Valley Community Foundation is a public foundation that has given out more than $500,000 since its creation to local non-profits that provide services to Bulkley Valley residents. Recent recipients have included a Step Up Tutoring Program, the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Committee and Mountain View United Church. Send in your application between October 1st and November 30th.

The Coast Opportunity Funds stands out by its recognition that a sustainable economy is crucial for the promotion of both First Nations’ rights and habitat conservation. Born out of the cooperation between First Nations governments, resource industries, governments and conservationists, it attempts to empower First Nations to create healthy economies while preserving their environment. It oversees and manages $116 million provided by the Province of British Columbia, the Government of Canada, and six private foundations. The financial aid is distributed through two funds. The Conservation Fund is a long-term fund designed to support activities that maintain or improve the Great Bear Rainforest. The Economic Development Fund is a shorter-term fund implemented to create sustainable businesses and community-based employment opportunities over seven years. Applications are accepted all year long: visit their website to see if you qualify.
