We’re excited to tell you that the Community Prosperity Fund is set to launch in early 2024!

The Community Prosperity Fund is a new $25 million fund made possible through the Stronger Community Services Fund from Government of BC. These awards will be distributed by BC community foundations. Vancouver Foundation believes in community-driven decisions and trusts the expertise of local community foundations to guide our collective efforts towards poverty reduction and sustainable community development. 

This fund will provide multi-year operational grants for charities and non-profits addressing poverty reduction and social inclusion across the province.

Here’s what we know so far:

  • Update: The application portal will open at the end of March 2024. The window for submission of applications will be just over 30 days. High-level eligibility criteria will be available at the end of February, and the full applicant guide will be available in early March.
  • The Community Prosperity Fund is a three-year, $25 million program to invest in community organizations working on poverty reduction and social inclusion.
  • The Northeast Regional Community Foundation will deliver this funding with other community foundations across British Columbia.
