Quesnel Community Foundation still accepting donations

CF reached its target of $50,000 in donations and will receive the matching funds from an annonymous donor,still accepting donations

Bob Lebeck is the chair of the Community Foundation board.

Quesnel Community Foundation (QCF) has reach their target ahead of schedule.

“Our endowment drive is still ongoing,” QCF president Bob Lebeck said.

“We reached the millstone set by an anonymous donor who pledged to match the first $50,000 in donations, however, despite reaching that goal, we’re still accepting contributions to the endowment fund.”

As the endowment fund grows, the interest generated also grows which raises the bar on how much QCF can hand back to the community in the form of grants each year.

Lebeck said it’s gratifying to see such support for the endowment fund.

“It’s amazing to see the generosity of people who donate to the Community Foundation,” he said.

“We are so grateful for every dollar we receive.”
