BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund Grant
2013 will be the third year the Real Estate Foundation of BC offers the BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund Grant. The 2011 grantee was Langley Environmental Partners Society for the B-WET project--be sure to watch the B-WET video! The 2012 grantee was Stream of Dreams Murals Society for "Mapping Where We Live." we will produce something similar for this year's grantee.
Proceeds from the inaugural 2010 Land Awards Gala launched the Real Estate Foundation's BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund, and 2011 was the first year that income from the fund was available. In 2010, over $39,000 was raised; subsequent years' gala proceeds will continue to be added to the fund. We invite ongoing donations to this endowment as the fund will support non-profit activities in water sustainability in the foreseeable future.
