Endowment fund helps local clubs
Released by Rebecca Connop Price, Curl BC
url BC has launched new branding for its Curling For Life Endowment Fund.
The fund, which was set up by a group of dedicated curlers with the purpose of supporting the long-term growth and development of the sport, has doubled in size since 2010.
The new logo has been designed to showcase that curling is a sport for life, and can be enjoyed at any age. The cyclical nature of the logo depicts how the fund can support curling in perpetuity. Please see the logo at the top of this release and attached to this email.
The purpose of the fund is to ensure all generations of curlers benefit from curling now and in the future.
The capital, which started at $10,000 when the fund was created, has grown to $20,234 and has already generated $1,800 to help curling centres throughout the province.
As the capital grows, more money will become available, through funds generated by investments, to fund programs for curling centres across the province such as the Business of Curling program.
We want to build on the successes of the Curling for Life Endowment Fund and grow the fund even more so we can help more centres realize their potential, said Curl BC Campaign Director Melodie Murray in a release on Tuesday.
We want to thank those people who have already donated to the fund and we invite anyone else to write to us or talk to us if they have any questions about the fund, said Curl BC Chair Terry Vandale.
There are a variety of donation options:
Visit https://s.vancouverfoundation.ca/CurlBC/donateonline.asp to donate or contact Melodie Murray here with any questions. Tax receipts are provided for donations of $25 or more.
