BRCF Awards $4500 to Camrose Association for Community Living

The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $4,550 grant to the Camrose Association for Community Living. Battle River Community Foundation Board Chairman Kevin Gurr presents the cheque to Robin Good, Chief Executive Officer for the Association.

The grant is to assist with funding the Association’s behavior management program and is from income earned by the Ken, Lori and Sean Ozment Family Fund, the Rostad Family Fund, and the Arie and Leny Vanderjagt Fund. These are established Field of Interest Endowment Funds, a Fund type that allows donors to specify area of interest or a community that they wish to support. The Foundation Board matches annual grant applicants with the interests the donor wishes to support.

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.
