The Casino of the Rockies recently donated $4,478.97 in ‘found money’ to the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies (CFKR).
The Casino noted that this is the largest found money donation to date.
“This donation will support the Community Foundation in continuing to build our existing endowment funds as well as create new endowment funds,” said Lynnette Wray, CFKR Executive director.
CFKR says money donated will gain interest in perpetuity. Intrest earings will then be used to fund grants to local non-profits every year.
The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies strengthens communities by keeping donated money local, supporting local projects, and helping local people,” says CFKR.
Projects that receive funding come from the community and reflect the values of where they originate.
