June 29th, 2012: The BC Water Sustainability Endowment Grant is supported by the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia. Amount $3,000.00. The REF will also produce a video about the successful grantee and project. All qualified donees under the Income Tax Act are eligible to apply. The purpose of this grant is to support sustainable real estate and land use practices for the benefit of British Columbians. Because of the Foundation’s “land use” mandate, the focus is on fresh water bodies and watercourses, and the foreshore: where land meets ocean. (Projects focused solely on marine environments are not eligible for support.) The single grant awarded will make a meaningful contribution to support activities that are community-based watershed stewardship and/or promote the sustainable use of fresh water.
