Port Moody Foundation is taking 2013 grant applications

The Port Moody Foundation is kicking off its 2013 granting cycle with a call for applications.

The foundation seeks letters of interest from eligible non-profit organizations needing financial support in 2013 for projects and programs that will benefit Port Moody and its residents. Grants of $500 to $2,000 may be given.

In 2012, the Port Moody Foundation provided more than $5,000 in grants to help local non-profits fulfill their goals of serving the community.

Letters of interest should be limited to one page and outline a project or program that fits with the funding areas identified in the foundation’s mission: social, cultural, ecological and recreational.

Letters should be submitted by Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, to: Port Moody Foundation, 300 Ioco Rd., Port Moody, B.C. V3H 2V7. A copy should also be emailed to

The foundation will review all submissions and create a shortlist of those that best meet the foundation’s funding criteria. Organizations selected will be notified later in February and will be requested to submit a more detailed funding application by March 8, 2013. Successful grant applicants will be notified in May 2013.
