Grant Recipients Archive

Each year, the Sunshine Coast Foundation awards more than $150,000 in funding to local charities. Our grant recipients contribute to our community in so many ways. Check out our Stories page for examples of our positive impact.

Since the Sunshine Coast Foundation began awarding grants in 2005, more than $1.5 Million has helped to fund more than 185 important programs and projects offered by 105 local organizations. On June 20, 2018, past grant recipients posed with a cheque for $1,000,000, symbolic of this significant achievement.

Granting is one of the two core parts of our mission. The other is building a pool of capital, the earnings from which are a source of grants. The funds available for granting are a direct result of the capital investment made in previous years.
