Grants are made to not-for-profit organizations designated by the Canada Revenue Agency as registered charities or "qualified donees."

Applicants must demonstrate fiscal responsibility and have a committed Board of Directors. 

Organizations which receive grants from the First West Foundation will be required to submit a completion report or impact statement with project evaluation data (if any) on the project being funded.  Periodic progress reports may also be requested on ongoing or deferred projects.
