2021 (CIP) Community Initiatives Grant
We Need Your Support
The local electoral areas make funding decisions using (in part) an online feedback form. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the Online Engagement Form (link below).
The more people who show support, the more likely we are to receive the full amount of funding we’ve applied for.
About Our Project
Prior to the covid pandemic, we began work to secure funding to purchase and install new gymnastics equipment (including uneven bars, a beam with safety padding and a tumbling vault). This equipment is needed to replace worn out and outdated equipment and will allow us to continue to provide safe instruction and training in gymnastics related activities. The estimated budget for the necessary equipment is $20,000.00. We have already secured (75%) $14,163.00 through various grants.
Only $5800.00 is left to be raised, and we have applied to the CBT’s Community Initiatives Program (CIP) for the remaining amount.
CIP applications are successful when they show a high level of community support from the residents in an electoral area. We are asking all gymnastics families to show their support through the online process!
The deadline to participate in the Public Engagement Process is
April 9th at 4:30pm.

An example of positive feedback:
“Glacier Gymnastics has already raised more than 70% of the budget for these equipment purchases. The CIP funding will ensure their project is completed successfully in a timely manner. Glacier is a responsible not-for-profit organization that positively impacts the wellbeing of our community and the City of Nelson. The organization and this project are deserving of council’s support.”

Please note that the online engagement tool is not a voting system, but a way for the public to provide the feedback on projects they feel are most important to the area in which they live. Once collected, all feedback will be shared with each area’s adjudication committee for their review and consideration.
