We are the Osprey Community Foundation, a local foundation created by and for the people of Nelson, BC and the surrounding area. We are here to help groups and individuals make an ongoing difference in their community.
Drop by our booth at Kootenay Coop Radio’s Big Block Party on Saturday May 25th. It will be held in the old Extra Foods parking lot from 1 – 7 pm. We’ll treat you to a cup of coffee and one of our world-famous Osprey cookies.
Board members Diana Ducs and Ron Little of the Amy Ferguson Institute recently donated $10,000 to boost the June Lythgoe Scholarship Fund. The gift represents a portion of the proceeds from the Institute’s successful opera production KHAOS. The June Lythgoe Scholarship supports talented local musicians to continue their musical studies.
Thanks to all who submitted applications for community grants. The deadline for applications is now past. Our grant review process is underway and we will be able to inform all applicants in mid-late May as to whether or not they have received funding.
