Sponsorship Fund Initiative Policy and Guidelines

Sponsorship Fund Application 

 

4-H Youth Loans:

Community Futures provides support to members of the 4-H Program by up to $2,000 for the purchase of marketable livestock – (beef, swine, and sheep). The projects must be within our service area also approved by and in good standing with a 4-H Organization. Cut-off for Loans is November 30th of each year. 

Contact flo [at] cfdccariboo [dot] com (Florence Gonyer) for more information.

Community Economic Development:

For rural communities to compete in our fast changing world, they must adopt new and focused economic development strategies. Successful rural communities are those which identify, take stock of and access economic opportunities and then find unique ways to build upon what they already have.

Not only do resilient communities use their existing assets, they also look for new and efficient ways to produce and then market products or services to new customers – and nowadays they look to new global markets as well as local ones.

Our Community Futures plays a key role in working alongside other local and regional community leaders for the development of a sustainable future vision. Along with our community partners, we invest in activities and projects designed to allow our community to be resilient and successful.
