How to Apply
The Salt Spring Island Foundation awards grants twice yearly, in the spring and fall. The next regular grant cycle is our Spring 2018 granting cycle which is now open with applications being accepted between February 1 and March 31, 2018.
This spring grant cycle will include additional funds to benefit children and youth’s recreation programs, thanks to a generous bequest from Joan Nicholson. As this is part of the Spring 2018 grant cycle, applicants must complete the online application by March 31, 2018.
