The Comox Valley Community Foundation will be hosting its annual Community Enrichment Awards on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 at 1:30pm at the Comox Community Centre, located at 1855 Noel Avenue in Comox.

Members of the public are welcome to attend as we recognize and celebrate the 2020 Community Enrichment and Professional Development grant recipients and the work that is done by the many non-profit organizations in our community in support of children and youth, seniors, the environment, adults with disabilities, and our community’s most vulnerable residents.

“We will be distributing close to $330,000 to 42 distinct organizations, both our largest dollar amount yet and the most organizations we have supported in a single year,” said Matt Beckett, President of the Comox Valley Community Foundation. “We are extremely grateful for the continued support we receive from our fund holders and donors who make this possible each and every year.”

“We would also like to extend a special thank you to Vancouver Foundation for the confidence they demonstrated in us to distribute the Robert & Florence Filberg Funds for Child Welfare and Religious Organizations, which contributed significantly to the number of organizations we were able to support this year,” added Beckett.
