Non-profit Tech Grants

Non-profit organizations make important contributions to local community development and well-being. A lack of technological infrastructure creates a major barrier for non-profits to provide service to their communities.

This program supports the acquisition of technology to increase efficiency and effectiveness of non-profits to improve operations and adapt programming.

Eligible applicants include registered non-profits in good standing and First Nations communities in the Columbia Basin Trust Region.

The Trust often receives requests for more funding than what is available and will prioritize requests from eligible applicants:

  • with permanent staff;
  • with physical office location(s) within the Trust region that are not a home residence; and
  • that actively deliver programs that support broad public good with low financial barriers for the public to access.
