Supporting Social Well Being

with No Comments

The VCF values the social well being and economic diversity of the community and supports a variety of initiatives each year through the VCF Community Grant program. Some organizations receive annual contributions such as $7500 to the local grant writer, who is hosted at the Village of Valemount in partnership with Northern Development Initiative Trust. The VCF requests that funded societies, groups or organizations provide financial transparency by keeping a budget and recording volunteer hours for their supported program.
