Forty-nine community organizations made their pitch to the community to receive funding from the Columbia Basin Trust at the community centre on Tuesday.

The annual event where various organizations make their case for Affected Areas & Community Initiatives Program funding brought out more than 100 people to the community centre.

There were 49 groups looking for funding (a 50th, the Revelstoke Climbing Coop, withdrew their application at the last minute), ranging from museums to social organizations to sports clubs.

They were seeking a combined $707,044 to help fund $1,706,827 in projects. CBT has $339,519 to give out to Revelstoke and area groups this year.

The complete list of projects is below.

Following the presentations, attendees were allowed to make their top 10 choices for funding. The community vote is worth 15 per cent of an applicant’s score, while the rest is determined by a panel of evaluators: Fraser Blythe, Linda Chell, Janet Lemieux, Cindy Maloney and Gary Starling. City council makes the final decision on funding.
