CFKR 2023 grant application opens

Community organizations can start applying to the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies (CFKR) for funding with the opening of their annual granting process.

CFKR officials said this includes community funds in Elkford, Sparwood, and Fernie, and endowment funds for the Cranbrook area, including the South Country.

“We’re thrilled to launch our 2023 grant application process,” said Lynnette Wray, CFKR Executive Director. “Our annual granting continues to grow, thanks to the generosity of our donors, who believe in sustainable charitable giving through permanently invested endowment funds.”

An organization must be a CRA-qualified donee or in an agreement with an existing one to be eligible for any CFKR grants. Applications also need to clearly show a direct and positive benefit to residents.
