Many benefit from Dungate Community Forest donations

Organization takes assistance applications year round

Founded in 2008, the Dungate Community Forest has established an annual community donations program through profits derived from its logging activities.

There’s no application deadline date and requests for donations are considered year around.

Foundation chair Steven Wright says a number of factors come into play when evaluating an application for financial assistance.

Those factors include the applying group’s own contributions of material or labour, he said.

Dungate Community Grant application forms can be requested by emailing

A Rocha’s Buck Creek hatchery is just one of the many groups to receive financial assistance from the Dungate Community Forest. A well for the fish culture activities, a new chiller to keep the salmon at the right temperature and some parking lot landscaping were the result.
