Spark Fund

What is the Spark Fund?

What is the Spark Fund program?

As part of the 25×25 initiative, BC Parks Foundation is offering funding to community‑serving groups that are working to help fulfill the goals of the 25×25 initiative.

Selected groups should be motivated by one of the three following criteria while keeping safety as their top priority:

  • Facilitating new experiences by spending time outside in nature
  • Promoting stewardship by collecting nature observations
  • Increasing accessibility in parks by creating activity guides

Many groups have already received funding and are undertaking important work across the province.

If you have questions or if you would like to express interest in applying for a Spark Fund, please reach out to hello@25×
