What is the Community Diversity Fund?

Alex Bell decided in 2010 that he wanted to start a community fund that would allow people marginalized in Coquitlam and the Tri-Cities to become more integrated, either socially or economically. Therefore, the Community Diversity Fund was born. In order to help raise money for this fund Alex, with the support of Laurel Lawson, started the Community Diversity Fund fundraising event The Coquitlam Crunch Challenge in 2010.

The Community Diversity Fund’s grants will be provided to Tri-Cities individuals, non-profit organizations, or community groups, that are initiating actions, programs, or education that will enhance integration, participation or access in the community for any diversity group identified by the community as being marginalized. Uses of this fund will include, but are not limited to: grants to support diversity initiatives that encourage or facilitate the inclusion of diversity groups into the social or economic fabric of the community grants to support initiatives that encourage dialogue, understanding and respect of, or between two or more diversity groups (such as seniors and youth, different cultures, different religions); and grants to support initiatives to educate the community about the different diversity groups in order to promote better understanding, acceptance and inclusion.
