Grants to Organizations
Policy A-012-00 POL
The intention of the Town of Sundre Grants Program is to share available resources throughout the Town. Supporting volunteer, community-based organizations is fundamental to maintaining our quality of life. The Grants Program is also open to businesses for such things as storefront or landscape improvements, and to events organizers to support the hosting and promotion of events that will draw visitors into Sundre.
Grants are intended to provide modest levels of support and assistance to community non- profit organizations and other organizations with a demonstrated need. The intent is to enhance a project, program, service or other, but is not intended to sustain the organization. The program attempts to balance on-going needs and a rotation of new applicants. For more details or to receive and application, please review the Grants to Organizations Policy.
