The Wood Buffalo Community Foundation is giving away $200,000 through their 2019 grant funding.
There are five community groups and charities who were selected – following an application process that began in May.
The recipients include the Canadian Mental Health Association, FuseSocial, St. Aidan’s House Society, the Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo and Pastew Place Detoxification Centre.
WBCF Board Chair Tony Mankowski says they’re pleased to support these groups that are providing valuable programs and assistance to individuals and families.
“It is our goal to contribute to a sustainable social profit sector that will help support our region for decades to come, and our annual grant cycles are just one of the ways we work to achieve that goal,” Mankowski said.
The funds will go to support community projects such as CMHA’s Peer Support Program, St. Aidan’s Senior Outreach & Advocate program and FuseSocial Wood Buffalo Society’s Leadership & Education program.
This is the second round of grant funding issued by WBCF.
Since being founded in 2017, WBCF has been building its endowed funds to help support and strengthen the social profit sector in the Wood Buffalo Region.
