Applications for grants, bursaries and scholarships are being accepted until 4 p.m., Feb. 14. More information and application forms are available at www.coquitlamfoundation.com
Along with a notice that the foundation is now accepting applications for grants, bursaries and scholarships, the foundation announced it recently created the new Coquitlam Foundation Community Fund (CFCF). Under the CFCF, the foundation will be better able to make grants in several areas, including: fine arts, performing arts and literacy; community wellness; culture; education; environment; and heritage.
Successful applicants will be notified in May and will be invited to attend the Coquitlam Foundation awards celebration evening June 5 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Last year, the foundation distributed $114,000 at its awards night.
In addition to its own foundation-directed funds, the Coquitlam Foundation manages 21 donor-advised funds on behalf of various groups, families and individuals. Its total endowment is now more than $2.5 million.
The Coquitlam Foundation accepts donations to any of its funds c/o 1207 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, B.C., Canada, V3B 7Y3; or through its website.
