Despite 2020 being one of the most challenging years for most of us, here in the philanthropic sector at least, there were many funding projects and opportunities for money to boost and enhance community work in our region.
NEBCCF Fall Grant Cycle:
The Northeast BC Community Foundation awarded two grants in the Fall Grant Cycle both from the Dawson Creek Community Endowment Fund. The Dawson Creek Rotary Club – Sunrise was given $4,000 towards the Dawson Creek Trans Canada Walking Trail re-paving project. The South Peace Historical Society received $1,000 towards their ongoing project to digitize newspaper editions for the Peace Region.
The Emergency Community Support Fund provided $75,000 in the first round in the Summer of 2020, and then much to our surprise, Round #2 was announced in October and an additional $80,000 was assigned.
