Alberni Valley Community Foundation seeks grant recipients

The Alberni Valley Community Foundation is accepting applications for grants to be awarded at the foundation’s annual general meeting next May. The deadline to receive applications is Feb. 28.

Community groups with CRA charitable status are eligible to apply in the following categories: Arts and Culture, Education, Sports and Leisure, Social programs and Environment.

The community foundation has received two generous donations in the past few months that enable them to offer community grants. The late Richard Berg left $135,000 to the foundation in his will when he died last year. The late Dr. Frank Roseborough, who grew up in Port Alberni, left $100,000 to the foundation in his will. Bequests such as these allow the foundation to accrue interest and continue to offer grants.

Information about the foundation and the grant process can be found at albernifoundation.ca. Letters of intent should be sent to Alberni Valley Community Foundation, The Station, 3100 Kingsway, Port Alberni V9Y 3B1. For further information please call 250-723-2638.
