Policy

  • Gifts and donations to the ICF are invested in perpetuity providing a means to build a permanent legacy for the communities it serves.  These donations are usually designated for a specific community or area of interest which, in turn, makes for different levels of funding available for distribution in the various areas.
  • Through its grants program, the ICF supports charitable projects in the areas of community services, culture, education, heritage and the environment, health, recreation, youth and seniors programs.
  • Grants are made only to organizations which are registered as charities with Canada Revenue Agency.
  • All applications are considered on merit and in light of funds available for distribution for that particular community or area of interest.
  • Projects and services may not be located on privately owned property.
  • Matching or challenge grants may be made in appropriate circumstances to stimulate response from other sources.
  • The receipt of grant applications is not formally acknowledged and applications are dealt with in the order they are received.  Applicants should allow at least 2 to 3 months for completion of the review process.
  • Any proposed alterations to an approved project must be presented in writing to the ICF Board for approval.
  • The Foundation reserves the right to publish photos and names of individuals and organizations in its annual reports and promotional displays.

Successful applicants are required to provide a written report, copies of receipts, and photos within six months of receipt of the grant.  Failure to comply will be taken into account with any future requests for funds.
