The City of Kelowna Sesquicentennial Grant deadline is Monday, Oct. 31. This is the second and final intake for the City’s Sesquicentennial Grant. The grant is available to eligible non-profit organizations and provides matching funds of up to $15,000 to support community driven projects.

  • Embrace, preserve and celebrate the natural assets of Kelowna including the lake, trails, landscape and four season recreational opportunities;
  • Celebrate cultural diversity and freedom;
  • Empower our youth to shape the community they desire;
  • Honour the history of our region and the prominent people and events that connect us;
  • Recognize and celebrate the rich history and knowledge of Indigenous nations who continue to be an integral part of our community; and
