The Prince George Community Foundation appreciates the opportunity to consider all proposals. The Foundation receives a large number of requests, and we regretfully have to decline many commendable proposals. A declination in no way indicates a negative assessment of your organization or proposal and we truly hope that your endeavors are successful. It merely speaks to the overwhelming needs of our community and our desire to respond to them in a balanced and equitable manner.
