Our 2017 Grants cycle is now closed - the deadline for submitting Letters of Intent was 5.00pm on 13th January 2017, and we received details of 21 local community projects being worked on this year.
Of those, 17 groups are now putting together their Applications, the deadline for which is 5.00pm 17th February 2017.
Looks like it will be another great year!
2016 $50,000 challenge
Between 1st November and 10th December, we were set a challenge: raise at least $50,000 and anonymous donors would match that $50,000 with a donation of their own to the Community Endowment Fund.
Thanks to the enduring generosity of the community we serve, we were rewarded with donations exceeding $67,500 to secure that additional $50,000 donation.
Of course, we accept donations throughout the year, by way of cash, cheque, Interac, Visa, MasterCard, and existing investments. For more details, go to the How To Give tab.
Thankyou, again, for your support. Follow our continuing progress via our Facebook page.

The gift that keeps on giving
Quesnel Community Foundation operates under the premise that all donations received will be used to generate investment income to be used to fund our Grants...with the capital created by those donations never being spent.
