The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $10,000 grant to The Camrose Association for Community Living. Battle River Community Foundation Chairman Kevin Gurr presents the cheque to Stacey Olstad, Program Director of The Association.
The grant is from the Kevin and Allyson Gurr Fund established at a Community Builder Dinner, the Jo-Ann Carter Fund established in memory of Jo-Ann Carter, and the Foundation’s Community Funds. This grant assists in funding Kandu Day Camp which provides recreation, sport, and craft activities for children, including those with special health and developmental concerns.
The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support organizations 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 is 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.
