One grant of $12,000, from income earned in the Linton and Debbie Falk Community Youth Fund, the Dave Jacobson Memorial Fund, the Ellard Dilworth Fund, the Rostad Family Fund, and the Foundations Community Funds, was in response to an application by the Association for support of three streams of summer day camps offering a wide variety of social, recreation, physical fitness and craft activities for all children, including children with special health and development concerns.
Another grant of $1,800, from income earned in the Ricky James Hillaby Memorial Fund, a Donor Advised Fund, was also awarded in support of the Association’s summer camp programs.
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 are 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 $8,679,700 to support charitable activities in the Battle River Region.
