The Funtastic Sports Society has launched it’s Community Grant Program this morning.
A total of $30-thousand dollars in funding is available to qualifying community groups who log onto the Funtastic website according to Executive Director Tony Pallas.
“It’s open for non-profit sports groups throughout the north Okanagan. Essentially last year we saw over 33 applicants from different groups.”
“It’s open to everybody really. There’s a whole criteria on line so make sure you check it out. Go onto our web site and check out our criteria and if your non-profit sports group is eligible, we encourage you to apply.”
“We are giving out $30,000. It will go to various sports groups. Last year we gave over ten sports groups different amounts, but the total amount given out will be $30,000.”
14 recipients shared $30-thousand last year. Since 1985, Funtastic has donated over $1.7 million dollars locally.
