You can help Squamish organizations secure $1,000 in funding!


Jul 7, 2020

This year, we received 15 applications from Squamish charities and organisations as part of our Community Sponsorship Program.

Cast your vote on Facebook for your favourite local organization, and the post with the most likes, comments, and shares will win $1,000 in addition to their Woodfibre LNG community grant.

As Squamish begins to slowly emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our local organizations could use some extra funding. 

That’s why we opened our 2020 Community Sponsorship Grant Program submissions earlier than usual this year, and extended the application period, so we could give back to as many Squamish organizations as possible.

We wanted to be more responsive to the hardest hit areas of our community and economy, so for the first time we targeted this year’s grants to organizations in five sectors:

  • Tourism
  • Sports
  • Education
  • Health
  • Environment

In May and June we received over a dozen applications, and we are thrilled to be able to provide funding to so many well-deserving local organizations.

But there’s more!

This year we announced an additional opportunity for Squamish organizations to receive funding – a social media voting contest where YOU, the Squamish community, chooses the winner.

We asked Squamish organizations to submit a photo or video with their application that gives us an idea of the great work they do in the community.

Now we’re asking YOU to tell us who should receive an additional $1,000 on top of their existing 2020 Community Sponsorship Grant.
