CBT Grants

Our funding - from small to large - promotes the health of individuals, communities and ecosystems throughout the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region. Each granting stream is supported by its own Advisory Committee comprised of local volunteers with interest and expertise relevant to the specific grant. Advisory Committees review proposals and make funding recommendations to the CBT Board of Directors.

Arts & Culture Grant
The CBT Arts & Culture Committee has an annual discretionary budget to fund small projects throughout the region. Projects will be funded up to a maximum of $6,000.

Funding Priorities
While the Arts & Culture Committee is open to creative ideas, funding priority will be given to projects that:

  • Provide opportunities for participation in arts & cultural activities, particularly inter-generational and for youth.
  • Foster cross-community and/or cross-cultural engagement, teaching, and learning.
  • Build capacity in the arts through workshops, collaboration opportunities, and arts education.
  • Deliver equity-seeking initiatives that aim to address barriers to equal access and participation in the arts (BIPOC, LGBT2Q+, people with disabilities, etc.).
