The Community Foundation of Swan Valley (CFSV) held their Annual General Meeting and Fall Granting Night on December 6, 2018. “Philanthropy has been defined as the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially as the donation of money to good causes.” said CFSV Board Chair Lorne Henkelman.

The Fall Grant recipients certainly represented many good causes throughout the Swan Valley. As each group came forward to receive their grant, they shared how the grant money would be used for their organization.

Since its inception in 2005, just over $2.3 million has been contributed to the CFSV, providing a never-ending source of income for the community. The original donations remain untouched and the interest earned is used to support local charities. In 2018, the CFSV distributed well over $89,000 in grants, scholarships and bursaries. The total amount distributed since its inception is over $573,000.

The CFSV thanks the donors who make these grants possible and encourages others to consider a donation to the CFSV in celebration of birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions, as a lasting tribute in memory of a loved one, or as part of your will.
