Our last column described the process that organizations go through to apply for grants from the Phoenix Foundation. The grants committee has been meeting through these last few weeks to make the final decisions about allocating available revenues.
Twenty organizations applied for funding. Every year the number of dollars requested exceeds what is available. Unfortunately, many good project ideas remain unfunded.
The Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities is dedicated to increasing the size of our endowments so that more groups can receive help from the community grants program.
It is especially exciting this year that communities across the whole of the Boundary, from Christina Lake to Beaverdell, will benefit from the grants program.
The following 13 organizations are approved for grants this year.
Beaverdell Community Club
Boundary Family and Individual Services Society
Boundary Food Bank
Boundary Metis Association
Boundary Musical Theatre Society
Christina Lake Gateway Community Development
Granby Wilderness Society
Grand Forks Volunteer Firefighter’s Association
Habitat for Humanity
Midway…and Beyond Little Theatre
West Boundary Food Security Program
