The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $14,300 grant to the Camrose Performing Arts Centre Management Council. Battle River Community Foundation Director Ben Paulson presents the cheque to Nick Beach, General Manager of the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre.
The grant is from income earned by the Camrose Performing Arts Centre Program Endowment Fund, a Designated Fund established to support the operation of the Jeanne and Peter Performing Arts Centre.
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.
