New grants from Community Foundation of Lethbridge

Charities in Lethbridge are set to receive half a million dollars in grants from the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta. The Community Priorities Fund will provide the money to charities throughout Alberta, and the Henry S. Varley Fund for Rural Life grant supports projects that provide innovation, community education, and training. The Executive Director for the Community Foundation of Lethbridge, Charleen Davidson, says it’s an honour to provide this money to deserving organizations in the community.

The foundation is also celebrating their 55th year in serving the community, and this last round of funding will take the organization to over $1-million distributed in 2021.

Applications are due by October 15.
