The City of Coquitlam provides annual grants to non-profit, community-based organizations through the Spirit of Coquitlam Grant Program. Funding for this is derived from Casino Host Agreement revenue. Since 2002, the City has awarded $8.45 million to over 200 different organizations, such as the Coquitlam Firefighters Charitable Society. The Society supports various initiatives, including their flagship Nutritional Breakfast and Snack Program. Meals and snacks are delivered by volunteers in several elementary schools across Coquitlam.
