ANNUAL AWARDS CELEBRATION – Thursday June 21, 2020 

Every year, the public is invited to participate in our Awards Celebration. In December of each year, a call for applications goes out to the public and community groups in the Tri-Cities. A grants and bursary review committee convenes to evaluate applications. In late spring of each year, the Coquitlam Foundation holds an awards ceremony where $100,000+ in grant, bursary and scholarship cheques are awarded to the successful applicants. The Evergreen Cultural Centre has graciously hosted this event for many years. More information will be available closer to the date.
