Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grants

Abbotsford Community Foundation is pleased to partner with the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Abbotsford for the fourth  third  year in a row to provide up to $22,000 for our community’s Neighbourhood Grants Program.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program has shifted to help fund small-scale projects that reduce social isolation.  All projects will adhere to physical distancing guidelines.  We invite individuals to dream up creative projects that address the following areas:

  • tackle and address social isolation
  • build community strength and resilience, and
  • foster community creativity and wellbeing

Grants will range from $50 to $500 and are intended to help you bring your project to life.  If you plan to host skill-sharing projects, you can also spend up to $350 of the proposed budget to provide honorariums – including yourself!  Read more HERE to find out further details.  Have questions before you apply?  FAQ’s page is also available to review HERE.

When you are ready to apply, applications are now being accepted.  APPLY HERE

Physical distancing may keep us apart, but we also know that this is a catalytic opportunity to explore new, innovative ways to build community together.  So, how can you get creative in quarantine?  Your community will thank you!
