Grants

In 2015, Gwaii Trust approved grants totalling $3.75 million—grants to individuals and organizations that created jobs, put smiles on kids' faces, and creatively shared our collective vision for a unique Island way of life.

In 2016 we have budgeted $2.4 million for grants that continue to enhance all aspects of Island life: youth, education, economic development, the arts, community innovation, events and more. It's about quality of life – together, we're making Haida Gwaii an even better place to work, live and play!
