BRCF Grants $8,500 to the Association of Communities Against Abuse (ACAA)

The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $2,500 grant to the Camrose & Area Animal Shelter Society. Battle River Community Foundation Director Rob Hauser presents the cheque to Sherry Lafortune, President of the Society.

The grant is from income earned by the Alice Ofrim Fund and the Fred and Jean Molnar Fund, both established to support the care, shelter, and adoption of animals in the Battle River area, and from the Foundation’s Community Funds.

The Battle River Community Foundation exists to support organizations such as the Camrose & Area Animal Shelter Society 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 $8,216,000 to support charitable activities in the Battle River Region.
