Applying for a Grant


Let's make an impact together!

And so the grant cycle begins. Generally, the Community Foundation of Whistler's grant cycle runs from winter to spring. We welcome you to consider submitting an application and encourage you to read the guides to determine whether you or your organization qualify.

New for 2019, we invite you to use our new online grants management system. Our grants program officially opens on January 1, 2019, but you have access to the portal today.

Please create your organizational account for access to our application process.


Different programs use different processes. Please refer to specific Grants Guides for information about our granting principles, eligibility, focus areas, the application process, and what to do if your organization is not a registered charity or a qualified donee.
