Looking for some FREE money to run a cool community project? Look no further!

The MicroGrants 4 Neighbours program gets small amounts of money (usually $50 to $500) directly into the hands of neighbours doing important things for the community. For the 2023 granting cycle the Cortes Foundation will be focusing on projects that promote youth empowerment and literacy. We will be prioritizing projects that are youth-serving and youth-led. However, we still encourage applications from people of all ages and all kinds of community projects!

The CICF 2023 MicroGrants for Neighbours program is made possible by the Neighbourhood Small Grants program of Vancouver Island, the Campbell River Foundation, Decoda Literacy/Cortes Literacy Now/ FolkU, and the Cortes Island School, and numerous neighbours like you.
