Kootenay Savings supports local causes

At Kootenay Savings, we don’t just like our region, we love it and are inspired by it. Every day we are fortunate to work with people from all corners of the Kootenays to help create lasting legacies that positively impact our communities for generations to come.

One of the many ways we help build vibrant, healthy communities is through the work of the Kootenay Savings Community Foundation. In its 18 years of existence, the Foundation has invested nearly $4.4 million in local initiatives, including the recent announcement of $82,740 in new grants and donations.

This latest round of funding supports a wide array of projects and initiatives throughout the Kootenays – providing a ordable housing for seniors, enabling improvements to medical care, ensuring programs and services can be accessed by those in need, preserving historical sites, and many other worthy causes that help strengthen the core of our communities.

The diverse groups from the East Kootenay benefitting from this most recent round of funding includes: Columbia Valley Community Foundation – $6,149; Columbia Valley Youth Soccer Association – $2,000; East Kootenay Medieval Society – $5,000; Edgewater Recreation Society
- $2,250; Kimberley & District Community Foundation – $5,943; Kimberley District Heritage Society – $1,000; Kimberley Military Ames
- $1,050.
