Grantseekers

Grants are like gifts, only they have the ability to give back to entire communities! If you’ve been working hard on a project to help enhance Drayton Valley, let us shoulder some of that responsibility.

We are the source to connect you to donor funds: if you’re a “do-er,” we’re here to help you find a giver. Let’s make your idea reality. Because that’s what community is all about!
