Neighbourhood Small Grants

Neighbourhood Small Grants Coming Soon

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.
