The Battle River Community Foundation recently awarded $3,550 in grants to the Camrose Open Door Association. Battle River Community Foundation Treasurer Neil Lunty presents the cheque to Morgan Shott, Regional Director of the Association.
The grants are from income earned by the Camrose Open Door Association Fund, the Laverna Grandfield Fund, the Dwight and Bonnie Maurer Fund, and the Larry and Margaret Rathnavalu Fund which are designated funds established to support the Camrose Open Door Association. Income from the Doug and Anne Burkard Family Fund, a donor advised fund which allows the donor to recommend annual grants recipients, was also granted to the Association.
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 $8,216,000 to support charitable activities in the Battle River Region.
