Neigbhourhood Small Grants Open May 1st
Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) provides grants of up to $500 for projects that connect people. And a grant means you don’t need to pay back this funding — no matter the outcome.
For 20 years, Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) has supported ideas that bring people together. We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it.
And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
As a local partner organization to Vancouver Foundation, Whistler Community Foundation is assisting in administering the Neighbourhood Small Grants Program.
