Up to $25,000 for rural B.C. communities

AgriSpirit FundGood Monday morning, Funds Fans!  More sunshine today and more money for community projects 🙂  Before I get to it though, I want to remind you that tomorrow is the deadline for BC Rehab’s next round of funding.

In today’s funding news, if your organization is raising money for a capital project, it may qualify for a donation between $5,000 and $25,000 to supplement your other fundraising efforts from the FCC AgriSpirit Fund.   Online applications will be accepted beginning on May 7th, 2013 at 8:00am EST and closing on June 18th at 11:59pm EST.

The FCC AgriSpirit Fund is about making life better for people in rural communities. Successful projects in the past have included hospitals and medical centres, childcare facilities, fire and rescue equipment, playgrounds, food banks, libraries, recreation centres and community gardens.

For your project to be considered for funding, your organization must be at least one of the following:  a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency; a registered non-profit organization; a municipal body (a municipal body can include a town, city under 150,000 people, a rural municipality or a First Nations band); a non-profit organization that will partner with a municipal body who agrees to receive the money contributed and issue a receipt in their name.

There it is folks – go and get it!!  Stop in at the Poll before you go and don’t forget to LIKE us on FaceBook and follow us on Twitter @fundsblogger
