NT Foundation contributes to the valley

Letter to the editor from Cheryl Thomas, NT Communities Foundation

To the editor;

The North Thompson Valley is a wonderful place to live.  In the valley reside people who are indigenous, people who are pioneers, people who have chosen to live here for various reasons.   Many have experienced the benefits that are provided when a group or organization attains assistance from the North Thompson Communities Foundation.

For 10 years the North Thompson Communities Foundation has been ‘recycling your donations’ throughout the larger community of the valley.  From McLure to Blue River, residents can see the contributions their donations make helping to knit together the fabric of future generations.

We’ve funded youth programs, renovations in halls, provided for the clean up of wilderness campgrounds.  We’ve funded equipment for kitchens, skis for children, and music and art festivals.

Governor General David Johnston has invited all Canadians to join him, and Community Foundations across Canada with this simple thought: lets be a Smart and Caring Nation.

To quote him: “imagining the country as it could be … a smart and caring nation, where all Canadians can succeed, contribute, and develop their talents to their fullest potential.”

The North Thompson Communities Foundation is accepting applications for the 2013 granting cycle till the end of March.  Our granting application is available on line at ntcommmunitiesfoundation.com.

Naturally – if you would like to contribute to the growth of the NT Foundation, be assured that your gift will help to sustain the Foundation for years to come.  We welcome you and we thank all who have chosen to donate in the past.

Please, Make a tax-deductible donation in support of your community.  Funds raised by the Foundation assist charitable organizations that improve health, contribute to culture, enhance community services and support families… all right here in the North Thompson.


Cheryl Thomas,

2013 Chairperson,

North Thompson Communities Foundation
