About the Community Grants Program The Community Grants Program is our most flexible grants program. The program supports projects and programs taking place in the Whistler region and benefiting the local community. Grants are made possible by the Community Fund, the American Friends of Whistler Fund, and the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Fund. The Community Grants program is guided by the following values: COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS: The recognizes that connections foster a sense of belonging for individuals and we seek to foster partnerships and collaboration. INCLUSIVENESS: We support a vital community where everyone can participate and all the various segments of the community are embraced EQUITY: We strive for a fair society in which all have the opportunity to reach their potential in a safe and healthy environment CREATING LONG-TERM COMMUNITY IMPACT: We seek to support actions that invest in the long-term benefit of the community. Grants between $1000 and $4,000 will be awarded to projects that focus on making a significant difference in improving the quality of life for community members, with a 1

2 focus on children, youth and families. Applications benefiting other areas will also be considered. Basic Eligibility Applicants for funds must have Canadian charitable status or be a qualified donee under the Income Tax Act. Grants are not awarded to individuals or businesses. If your organization is not a registered charity, please refer to the Applicants who are not registered charities or qualified donees section below. Projects or programs must be for the benefit of the community in the Whistler region. Grants are awarded for definite purposes and outcomes covering a specific period of time. Grants are provided for up to 50% of a project/program s total budget for a specific period. As part of the total project or program budget, the Community Foundation of Whistler allows applicants to consider in-kind contributions of expertise, services and volunteers in the creation of a project budget. Please list the sources and breakdown of specific contributions in your project budget. For example: 5 volunteers x 20 hours each at $12/hr.= $1200. The will consider requests for multi-year funding. Please indicate on your application if you are seeking multi-year funding and how this will help you attain the outcomes you seek. Note that multi-year funding cannot be guaranteed. Whistler Vital Signs The s 2017 Vital Focus report on Growth, Change and Belonging in Whistler highlighted belonging as an area of concern in our community. Changes that are occurring in the community can bring a real sense of exclusion for many community members. Many struggle to make meaningful connections and feel a strong sense of belonging. To read the Vital Focus report on Growth, Change and Belonging and to learn more about the Whistler Vital Signs initiative, please visit our website: 2

3 Key Elements for Success The seeks to fund projects that meet many or all of following characteristics: Creating Impact: seek to achieve a clearly articulated, measurable impact on the community demonstrate stories of impact work to address the root causes of difficult issues and apply strategies for long term solutions respond to a demonstrated need. Applicants may refer to Whistler Vital Signs. contribute to the public body of knowledge related to an issue and outcomes identified Building Connections increase community connections through strengthening partnerships and collaboration show evidence of local support create opportunities for individuals to connect across barriers Supporting Inclusiveness and Equity engage vulnerable individuals and populations to strengthen inclusion involve those directly impacted by the project in the project plans and evaluation use and enhance the skills and knowledge of local people and encourage volunteers and community members to participate in community life. The Planning Approach The is emphasizing an outcome measurement framework approach to granting. This approach to program planning emphasizes clarity about the difference that programs are making in the community. We want to know your vision. How will our community be different as a result of your project? What is the change you want to create in the community? 3

4 A clear and logical plan for your project should demonstrate the resources required, the activities involved, the outputs you will produce, and the resulting changes in people, families, organizations, and the community. Activities are the specific actions you plan to undertake in order to create the changes you seek. Outputs are the deliverables of your activities; the most direct and immediate results (e.g. 5 workshops, 60 participants etc.). Example of an Outcome Measurement Plan: Activity Output Short Term Outcome Peer Educator development and support Provide training and ongoing support to Peer Educators 1 training session of 8 weeks with 8 participants 4 follow-up meetings for trained peer educators 8 peer educators support 16 peers in their own community Volunteering participants and community members gain new knowledge and skills to support their health and wellbeing Longer Term Outcome Participants and community members are connected to strong community support networks to continually support their health and well-being In addition, tell us how you will know whether you are achieving the results you envision. We encourage grant recipients to track both qualitative and quantitative change created. Collect data but be sure to also collect stories of impact. Include in your application your plan for how you will collect stories. It is easier to plan for this at the beginning, than scramble for your stories after your program is complete. For resources on story-telling, please refer to our website We encourage you to think about the various creative ways you can gather and tell stories (interviews, videos, testimonials, art, photos etc.). For guidance on an outcome measurement planning approach applicants are referred to the SMART Fund Outcome Measurement Guide- Using Outcomes to Design and Manage Community Health Activities. It not necessary to use this exact format in your application, but you may find the guide helpful. 4
