Foundation Grants

The NORTH THOMPSON COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION is now accepting applications for funding proposals for projects from organizations within the area from Blue River to McLure. Organizations should have a Federal Charitable Number, or be sponsored by another group that has a number.

Spring Granting Cycle opens Feb 10th, 2020.

As the North Thompson Communities Foundation is approaching the March 27th deadline for applications for their spring granting cycle we appreciate that during this unusual time we must take into consideration the uncertainty with regard to current events. We realize it is difficult to plan with accuracy any project involving community engagement activities. We will continue to accept applications but have extended the deadline to May 1st 2020.

We thank those applicants who have submitted proposals and ask for their patience as we monitor the situation and make decisions as to how to move forward.

NEW DEADLINE for receiving applications: May 1st, 2020
