The Revelstoke Community Foundation grants for 2019 are about to come to a close and you don’t want to miss your opportunity to apply by Thursday, February 28th at noon.

The Revelstoke Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for the people of Revelstoke by distributing the earnings from a permanent, ever-growing pool of funds. In other words, to allocate income from the fund to a range of charitable undertakings which reflect priority needs of the community.

The foundation strives to make a lasting difference in our community through a granting program that is balanced, creative, flexible and responsive.

Our principles are to be community driven, build community capacity, understand the changing nature of our community, create opportunities for dialogue, develop partnerships, and reflect diversity, among other things.
