Le Roi Community Foundation President & Chair, Jody Pistak presented this $10,000 investment from the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund to Lisa Pasin, Executive Director of KBRH Health Foundation (left to right).
KBRH Health Foundation is grateful to receive $10,000 from the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund in support of a governance framework review, which will strengthen organizational resilience for the benefit of healthcare for everyone in the Kootenay Boundary region.
The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support community service organizations, including charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies, as they adapt and modernize their organizations.
As the long-term recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we welcome the Government of Canada’s push for a more inclusive model of economic growth that creates opportunities for everyone in Canada.
The Government of Canada is delivering the Community Services Recovery Fund through three National Funders — Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada.
“Community service organizations are at the heart of communities like those in the Kootenay Boundary, creating a sense of belonging from coast to coast to coast,” says Jenna Sudds, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. “The Community Services Recovery Fund will enable organizations, like the KBRH Health Foundation, that serve our diverse communities to adapt and modernize their programs and services and to invest in the future of their organizations, staff and volunteers,” she adds.
“Together, we can rebuild from the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic and build a more just and equitable future for those in the Kootenay Boundary region.”
Additionally, we would like to thank the Le Roi Community Foundation for their work in the Community Services Recovery Fund and their continued support of the Kootenay Boundary region.
