Bill Penner, president of the Altona Community Foundation accepts a cheque for $986 from Harold Stoesz of Friesens Corporation. Friesens recently launched an “Employee-Directed Giving Program” through which each employee-owner votes for organizations they feel would benefit the most from charitable giving. The Altona Community Foundation was selected as one of their recipients. A contribution to the foundation lasts forever as the capital reserve is always left intact.
We are now accepting applications for spring grants.
