WGCF logo

Do you have a major project in mind that would provide significant benefits to the community, including positive economic, social, cultural and/or environmental impacts?

If so, Wells Gray Community Forest (2010) Society has up to $1 million available to be distributed this year under a new “major grant funding” envelope.

Seppi Wadlegger, the chair of the major grant committee, said, “Our committee is very excited that we are able to provide this opportunity to our community and area. This is an opportunity to apply for larger community projects that will make an economic and social impact in the community and area”

Over the past several years, Wells Gray Community Forest Corporation has generated substantial dollars that have been allocated to many organizations through Wells Gray Community Forest (2010) Society via a bi-annual granting program.

This bi-annual granting program will continue.

However, the society has developed in addition the new major grant funding envelope to distribute up to $1 million for large projects. Under the new initiative, grant requests for up to $300,000 per application will be invited.

Organizations within District of Clearwater and Wells Gray Country (TNRD Area “A”) are encouraged to first submit a “letter of intent” to apply for the funds.

The society is calling for “letters of intent” for projects that will provide a significant benefit to the economic growth and enhancement of our community and area. Organizations must submit by Friday, July 29, 2016. The letter of intent for this grant is available online at http://wgcfc.ca/wp/society-grants/.
