In 2017 we piloted a new program called the Community Grant Program which empowers the local community to help decide where some of Shell’s community funding should go.
Who is eligible?
Non-profit organizations from northeast BC can apply for grant funding.
Organizations not eligible for a grant include: individuals or individual pursuits, for-profit businesses, sports teams, sports tournaments, homeowners’ associations, fraternal or labour organizations, political organizations, and religious organizations for the sole benefit of the organization.
If your organization or project doesn’t fit the eligibility requirements above, read more about our general social investment funding for other opportunities.
How much is each grant?
Each grant awarded will be in the amount of $5000.
How can funding be used?
Funding may be used for one-time projects that benefit the community and are sustainable after the conclusion of the grant. Funding cannot be used for operating expenses, dues or memberships, trips, tours, travel expenses, conferences, advertising, giveaways or prizes, third-party fundraising events, individual scholarships, lobbying expenses or personal computers.
When is the application deadline?
April 30, 2019
Successful applicants will be notified within 90 days of the deadline.
How are recipients determined?
A panel of community members from northeast BC will select which grant applications will be funded through the program.
How do I apply?
Interested organizations may apply through our online application form. After selecting your province (British Columbia) and community, please select “Community Grant” as the type of request you are making.
