Funding for BC Parks & Recreation
Bc Recreation scholarships & Grants
The Recreation Foundation of British Columbia (RFBC) is proud to invest in the future of recreation, parks, environmentalism, and culture by empowering students and non-profit organizations with scholarships and grants. To date, we have granted over $600,000 to non-profit organizations across British Columbia to support their endeavours and help them achieve their goals. We are also proud to provide two distinct scholarship opportunities for students that have demonstrated a commitment to the field of parks and recreation.
In addition to funding grants and scholarships, we are a foundation that strives to educate individuals on the importance of recreation, health, public amenities, and environmentalism through in-depth educational workshops. We educate donors on what their money goes toward and why their donations are a worthwhile investment. Through this education, we help donors see that their funding is more than a tax write-off, it is giving back to their community and investing in future growth. We are a high-level think tank that works with many individuals who offer unique perspectives and collective knowledge, helping us achieve a deeper understanding of pressing issues and potential solutions.
