The Battle River Community Foundation awarded a $2,000 grant to SOS Program Camrose (Service Options for Seniors) Society.
This grant supports the Society extending their Senior Resource Outreach Program throughout Camrose County.
The grant is funded from income earned by the Foundation’s Community Funds, a group of named, endowed funds which allow the Foundation Board to select grant recipients from applications received annually. These funds provide the most flexibility to meet changing community needs over time.
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.
