Enderby Financial Community Endowment

You are here

The Enderby Financial Community Endowment was created as a legacy gift to support the community of Enderby and Area F of the North Okanagan Regional District.

Grants are typically in the $2,000 - $8,000 range. Click here to see a list of our 2016 Enderby Financial granting.

Grants will be made to community-based projects addressing one of the following areas:

  • Youth-based programming
  • Enhancing community education and literacy
  • Community services for at-risk populations (e.g., at-risk of hunger, abuse, neglect, homelessness, etc.) 
  • Seniors support services  

Applications for projects supporting the funding focus areas will be considered using the following criteria:

  • Projects should benefit the community of Enderby or communities in Area F of the North Okanagan Regional District.
  • Preference is given to projects that build community capacity. For instance, programs which help individuals and families learn new skills and abilities.
  • It is preferred that the requesting organization should be contributing toward some of the project costs or should be raising funds from other sources, as the Foundation's role is one of partnership.
  • Proposals should be for clearly presented specific projects or programs.
  • Projects should benefit many and offer equal and open access.
  • Funding is available for faith-based organizations so long as the requested project is for general community benefit.
  • Funding is available to federally-registered charities and "qualified donees" as described by the CRA.
