NT Communities Foundation looking for new board members

The North Thompson Communities Foundation chairperson, Cheryl Thomas and the secretary, Susan Garland attended the Annual General Meeting of the Communities Foundations of Canada in Vancouver this past week.

Philanthropic work is a way that anyone can work toward a stronger future and the development of the communities in which they live.

There are many different ways to ‘give’ and build specific endowments, or to support the movement as a whole.  Even a little, building over time, makes a huge difference.

The North Thompson Communities Foundation has been ‘granting’ funds, annually – to aid in the work of volunteer groups within the communities of the North Thompson Valley for several years.

We look forward to the day when “we” are a household entity and all of you have heard of this initiative and have become those small, but regular donors, who support the work of the North Thompson Communities Foundation.

Naturally, we also will assist with any philanthropic work you would like to initiate and/or contribute to.

We are currently actively looking for Board members, as our annual general meeting will be taking place in October, and would like to welcome those dedicated to the work of improving life in the North Thompson Valley onto our Board at that time.

Inspired by words from dignitaries like Naomi Tutu, former President Bill Clinton and the Governor General of Canada we have come back home knowing that, by “building bridges” between the communities of the North Thompson Valley and beyond, that we are working within the mandate of the Communities Foundations of Canada.

We are proud of you, the volunteer members of these wonderful communities, you are the ones that are helping the Governor General of Canada’s fondest wish come true.  You are the lifeblood of these communities.

Our regular meetings of the North Thompson Communities Foundation alternate each month between Barriere and Clearwater, beginning at 6:30 p.m., and we would invite you to attend.

For more information phone 250-674-3260 in Clearwater, or 672-5103 in Barriere.
