We are the Osprey Community Foundation, a public, charitable foundation created by and for the people of Nelson, BC and the surrounding area. We are here to help groups and individuals make an ongoing difference in their community. Donations to Osprey are pooled in a permanently-endowed fund – our community’s nest egg – which currently has a value of over $9 million. Each year, income generated by that capital flows back to the community in the form of grants to eligible charities and activities.
It’s our favorite time of the year! The income from all of our endowed funds has been harvested and our granting season has begun. Find our 2018 grant applications and guidelines here.
