Our 2023 Granting Cycle is closed.
The Slocan Valley Community Legacy Society welcomes applications for projects that will support Slocan Valley communities to be resilient and vital; that will protect, promote and enhance the natural environment; or that will promote creativity and innovation.
To be considered for funding, a project must have goals that fit with the Principles and Values of the Slocan Valley Community Legacy Society.
The Slocan Valley Legacy Fund is available to help people in the Slocan Valley develop a resilient and vital community. We aim to:
protect, promote and enhance the natural environment
promote creativity and innovation
support collaboration between organizations
Although individual projects will vary, each project should:
translate needs and problems into solutions
innovate to produce synergistic outcomes; that is, create results that are greater than simply the sum of the parts involved
weave together diverse interests and elements of life in the Slocan Valley, for instance any of its social, cultural, environmental, and economic elements
We hold a broad definition of resiliency, and hope to support projects that develop resiliency in a variety of ways ‒ agricultural, artistic, environmental, economic… ideas that spring from our rich and creative community.
The SVLF provides grants to charitable organizations that serve the Slocan Valley on an ongoing and sustainable basis. Below are some examples of projects we have helped fund over the years. Do you have a project in mind? Scroll down to learn more.
