Winter Games Legacy Fund

Established in 2001 using $60,000 the City of Kimberley had as a legacy from the Winter Games held in 1980.  This was supplemented with a further $37,500 from the 2008 Winter Games held in Kimberley and Cranbrook.  The revenue from this fund is given to the City of Kimberley to assist amateur sporting groups in the City of Kimberley.  Each year KDCF receives applications for these grants and makes recommendations to the City on grant recipients.  This grant process happens in January/February each year. Visit our Winter Games Fund archive for more information.
