PGCF Smashes 25th Anniversary Campaign Goal!
OCTOBER 28, 2021

 

A total of $1,736,354 has been raised for the Prince George Community Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Campaign. What began as a conversation amongst community leaders wishing to build “a charitable community savings account” has evolved into an organization that holds almost $16 million in assets. Thank you to the incredible support of the community we are 15% over goal on our $1.5 million Campaign. 

“This year has been trying for many individuals and we continue to see the amazing work (the Foundation) has been doing in the community to help.” Anonymous Campaign Donor. 

In February 2021 the Foundation launched this campaign with the help of Rio Tinto and their lead gift of $150,000 to help strengthen the Foundation and be able to provide even more support back into the community. These funds will help to continue to create a powerful legacy of the long term vitality of our community. Community is built on the premise that we are stronger and can have greater impact when we work together. This campaign has showcased how Prince George has come together once again. These funds are going to positively impact a variety of charities across our community including arts & culture, sports, social services, health, education, and the environment. 

“On behalf of the entire Foundation we want to thank the community for making this campaign so successful.” said PG Community Foundation President Alain LeFebvre, “It is a true testament to how generous and supportive this community is. We cannot wait to see how the funds from this campaign help strengthen our community.” 

The Foundation has granted back just under $5 million into the community and region and thanks to this campaign look to do even more in the future.
