Wow! An anonymous donor has established a permanent endowment fund for KidSport Medicine Hat & Redcliff with a $30,000 initial commitment! This is an open fund, meaning anyone wanting to support KidSport in a meaningful and lasting way can donate.
Providing a steady stream of annual investment income allows KidSport to serve more youth and reduces the constant pressure for fundraising.
“We were absolutely thrilled to be notified of this endowment being established for our organization’s benefit! Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the donor of these funds. This is an individual or family that has a strong desire to make sure as many local kids get the opportunity to play and receive the benefits that organized sports provide. Our organization is 100% volunteer driven, which means every dollar received from this endowment will be used to help local kids get in the game. This new source of funding continues to build and strengthen KidSport’s long-standing partnership with the Community Foundation of Southeastern Alberta. KidSport’s plan is to continue to grow the endowment and we encourage anyone considering a charitable contribution, whether a cash gift or estate bequest, to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out more about our organization and how careful and efficient we are with our donor’s money.” – Connelly Sherwick, Chair of KidSport
