VIMFF 2018 Grants and Initiatives

As a not-for-profit organization, the BCMC strives to use its financial and volunteer resources to advance the aims of the club. Historically, the club has done a good job in utilizing volunteers to achieve its goals. The club has also been very frugal in achieving its goals; so frugal in fact, that some members refer to the BCMC as the "Be Cheap Mountaineering Club". The result has been that the club has accumulated more than $100k in its General and Literary & Reserve Funds over the years.  The current executive believes the time has come to put our financial resources to good use. Thus, we would like to encourage members to brainstorm and submit proposals for how the funds could be used.

Proposals will be considered by the executive at any time. In order for a proposal to be approved it must contain a detailed description of the project, including expected outcomes, budget, timeline, and the names of those members accepting responsibility for ensuring completion.  An excellent example of a member proposal that was recently approved by  the executive was the replacement of the foot bridge over Sigurd Creek. Replacement of this bridge benefits members by improving access to peaks in the Tantalus range such as Ossa and Pelion.

Members are encourage to contact the executive if they have any questions or would like to discuss potential projects.
