The Columbia Basin Trust is looking for people who are planning a project that will help youth, social well-being or the environment.

And the CBT is willing to pay big bucks for the project.
“We are pleased to make nearly $2 million available to support community projects that will benefit our youth, improve social well-being or enhance our environment,” said Lisa Kilpatrick, Senior Manager, Sector Initiatives.

“We encourage people to visit our website to see where their project best fits, read examples of previously funded projects and then connect with us.”
To get started, read the program application guides online, then contact the Trust to discuss your project idea.

Application deadlines are:

The Youth Grants program funds projects that directly benefit Basin youth aged 12 to 29 years of age and develop youth leadership, support youth engagement, or enhance employment and entrepreneurial opportunities.
The Social Grants program funds community or regional projects that positively impact social well-being and address social issues in communities.
The Environment Grants program funds projects that advance environmental well-being in the areas of ecosystems, climate or environmental education.
The Trust has residents with expertise in each of the sectors who volunteer with the Trust to evaluate applications, make funding recommendations to Trust staff and provide advice in relation to the program.
