For the third year, the Comox Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) has dedicated funds to support professional development initiatives.Last year, an overwhelming number of professional development grant requests were focused on improving governance. In response, Comox Valley Community Foundation has hired local governance expert Jon Pascoe. Fellow Certified Management Consultant and Chartered Professional in Human Resources. Jon was first an Executive Director 29 year ago, and has been providing governance and human resources consulting for almost two decades. “Comox Valley charitable organizations play an essential role in creating a better future for all in the Valley,” said CVCF President Matt Beckett. “We all benefit from the passion and talents of the many employees and volunteers who work tirelessly to make the Comox Valley better.” The Comox Valley Community Foundation recognizes that many organization’s resources are stretched to the maximum. Often the most critical need they have is greater support and training for their Board, staff and volunteers. This year the Foundation has committed professional development funds to help improve the overall strength of the charitable organizations for up to 64 participants.
