This has been a year like no other. With the cancellation of our annual fundraiser, Strides for Strokes in June, the board of directors and staff were concerned about out financial stability. Thankfully, as reported in our July and August Turtle Soups, we have been successful in receiving the Covid-19 Community Response Grant, financial support from the Emergency Community Support Fund and some wage subsidies through the Canadian government which has helped to mitigate the loss of funds from our cancelled event. We are grateful as well to some of our members, their families and friends who have stepped in and donated, even though Strides for Strokes was cancelled. Thank you!
Strides for Strokes is only one part of our annual fundraising plan. Every January we apply to the District of West Vancouver, the City and District of North Vancouver for funds from the Community Grant program. This summer we received confirmation of their continued support in the areas of operations and speech language pathology.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the City and District of North Vancouver and the District of West Vancouver through their Community Grant program.
