Community Grants Policy and Application Forms

It is the policy of the City of Kimberley to consider, within its financial capacity, financial support to registered community organizations within the City, in the form of both cash and in-kind grants. This support is provided in recognition of the value these organizations provide to the well-being and vibrancy of the community and in helping the City retain a strong community focus.

The City recognizes that supporting volunteer community-based organizations is fundamental to maintaining our quality of life. The City thereby budgets an amount not exceeding 2% of the municipal tax levy annually to the Community Grants Program. The goal of this policy is to establish open and transparent guidelines for the evaluation and distribution of Community Grants. 

Please see the full Community Grants Policy for more information. (Amended Nov. 2020)
