The Salmo Valley Fund, with the support of the RBC Foundation and Community Foundations of Canada, is pleased to announce the award of a $5,000 grant in support of the Salmo Watershed Streamkeepers Society’s “The River Speaks” campaign.

The funding will support a youth-led, multi-media public outreach and engagement program relating to the importance of a healthy local watershed. Look for events being hosted by the SWSS through the first eight months of 2020.

This project is an example of the value of having a local community endowment fund: because of our affiliation with Community Foundations Canada, we were able to tap into a funding source that would otherwise have been unavailable and bring outside resources into our region.
