The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $7,000 grant to Changing Ways (formerly called the Family Violence Action Society). Battle River Community Foundation Past Chair Blain Fowler presents the cheque to Shannon Stolee, Program Director.
The grant is from income from the Darryl and Dyann Schultz Family Fund and the Foundation’s Community Funds. The grant will support counselling programs for youth and families affected by family violence.
The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support organizations such as this in East Central Alberta, which benefit the local communities and have a positive impact on the future.
Grants from the Battle River Community Foundation are primarily made possible through the generosity of individual donors and organizations that have created endowment funds. The principal of these endowment funds are kept intact and the income is made available annually to support local projects and organizations.
Since it was founded in 1995, the Battle River Community Foundation has granted over $7,900,000 to support charitable activities in the Battle River Region.
