Big Spirit Grant Deadline- August 19!

The deadline for the Wood Buffalo Big Spirit (WBBS) Grant Program  is quickly approaching! This unique program enriches the quality of life in our Municipality by fostering artistic growth, sporting excellence and economic development. Funding is provided by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo but applications are evaluated by the WBBS Committee whose 10 members are representative of the community at large.

These grants, which can be up to $10,000, are available to incorporated/registered non-profit organizations or registered charitable organizations (or those sponsored by such) located within the RMWB. Funds can only be used to further an applicant’s non-profit ventures and may not be used for operational or capital purposes. The WBBS grant program is designed to support new or enhanced community and cultural projects with an end goal of project self-sufficiency.

All potential applicants are encouraged to contact the WBBS Grant Program directly at the conceptual stage to discuss their ideas and to review the complete granting criteria and eligibility.

The next deadline is August 19, 2014.
