Spring 2003 Grants & Scholarships approved:
- 12 scholarships totaling
$4,700 to graduating RSS students.
- 16 grants totaling $20,975 to
local charitable organizations.
New Chair elected by Board of Directors:
Kevin Lavelle, an active director of the Foundation, was appointed Chair
at the June Board of Directors meeting. Kevin replaces retiring Chair
Jon Healey who will continue on as a director for the Foundation.
Earl Campbell has once again challenged donors to the Foundation to
match his family’s $4,500 donation by December 31. These donations will
be designated to a Scholarship Fund for local students pursuing post
secondary education in academic, vocational or trades training.
Vancouver Foundation Challenge:
If the Revelstoke Community Foundation is successful in raising $50,000
in new community funds for the 12 month period ending September 2003, it
will be eligible for a $5,000 grant from the Vancouver Foundation to
fund local capacity building projects. We have already surpassed $40,000
in new donations and look forward to completing the challenge.
Anyone wishing to make a
donation to the Foundation are asked to contact either Geoff Battersby
or Deb Wozniak at the Enterprise Centre or phone (250)837-5345.
