EKC announces $50,000 Legacy Campaign
The third and final funding to celebrate its 70th
EKC announces the $50,000 Legacy Campaign as the third and final funding for its 70th year $115,000 Celebration!
EKC is offering community groups a chance to be awarded $10,000 for legacy projects! Funds will be granted by the Cranbrook, Elkford, Fernie and Sparwood branches, plus there will be a regional award.
EKC’s Board of Directors initiated the 70th Anniversary Celebration in honour of its 70th Anniversary and to continue support for strong, local communities. The additional $45,000 resulted from EKC’s strong financial year and commitment to support community groups who have felt the impact of COVID-19.
EKC’s Positive Contributions Campaign gave back $20,000 last fall. Each of the following groups received $2,500:
Branch Out Society in Fernie;
Michel-Natal Branch #081 in Sparwood;
Caregivers Network for the East Kootenay Seniors in Cranbrook;
Wapiti Ski Club in Elkford;
Twin Meadows Animal Rescue Society in Fernie;
Sparwood Community Response Network in Sparwood;
Computer Donation Program in Cranbrook;
Elkford Housing Society in Elkford.
EKC’s December 14 Anniversary Donations gave back $45,000. Each of the following groups received $15,000:
- The Foundry East Kootenay supported by East Kootenay Foundation for Health and Ktunaxa Kinbasket Child and Family Services
- KEYSA’s Multi-Sport Indoor Facility
- Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies to support Cranbrook’s Salvation Army food program.
Like in 1950, EKC’s Board of Directors (pictured above) believes there is a better way to bank. As a local, strong credit union, EKC is here for its members and their communities. EKC encourages community groups to apply for the $50,000 Legacy Campaign by February 3, 2021.
