Pacific NorthWest LNG seeks submissions from community groups for community funding efforts
The focus for community investment continues to be in three area for the LNG company, with community and cultural initiatives, Education and Skills Training and Environmental Stewardship the areas where they are directing their attention and funding towards.
Key to any application will be the need for applicants to outline the objectives of their program, program and initiative and how it fits into the above guidelines. A budget and other financial information to support the request and a timeline that marks the start and end dates of the project or program and activity milestones.
The community investments by the company will not be awarded to the following areas:
Individual fundraising that is not tied to a charitable cause
Religious organizations undertaking religious activities
Contributions to political parties, politicians or political candidates
Ongoing operational expenses that include wages and salaries
Once your application is submitted it could take up to sixty days for Pacific NorthWest LNG to review it and make a decision, so keeping that timeline in mind is important for groups that may have a project coming up.
You can review the full application process here. If you need more information about their community investment program you can contact Pacific NorthWest at 250-622-2727 or toll free at 1 866-931-2201
The company has already provided funding for a number of programs and projects in the region, some of those include The Tall Trees Trail, North Pacific Cannery Historical Site, Hartley Bay Breakfast club and ReDesign Rupert.
