Central Okanagan Foundation Supporting Youth

Published July 15, 2015 08:13

On June 30, 2015, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs was awarded a generous multi-year grant of $45,000 from The Central Okanagan Foundation in support of our Youth Centre/Shelter Program. According to Diane Entwistle, CEO, "This grant from The Central Okanagan Foundation is absolutely vital in supporting the work we do at our Downtown Youth Centre/Shelter, which provides emergency shelter and support services to youth aged 13-18 years who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The funds will be used to support delivery of a coordinated series of cross-related, progressive services designed to help at-risk youth to move toward life of success and independence. We sincerely appreciate the support of The Central Okanagan Foundation in our work.”

The Central Okanagan Foundation is a community foundation providing an ongoing contribution to the quality of life in our community through building endowments, grant making and community leadership. We bring donors together to provide for the needs of the community today, tomorrow and forever.
