Grant Acknowledgement

The Denman Seniors and Museum Society (aka Activity Centre) wishes to publicly thank and acknowledge Dr. Tess Trueman and the Comox Valley Community Foundation (CVCF).

Dr. Tess Trueman, who played a major role in the creation of our Activity Centre facilities, created a Designated Fund with the CVCF. This fund provides for an annual grant to the Denman Seniors and Museum Society (DSMS). In fall of 2018, the first grant payment was awarded at the National Philanthropy Day Event – Fox and Jackie attended.

The grant of $2718 is very welcome and has been earmarked for fitness center equipment and building improvements in 2019.
In addition to the fitness center, DSMS manages and maintains, for use and benefit of our community: lounge, commercial kitchen, museum, gymnasium, and office space.

The Comox Valley Community Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that connects generous donors with the causes that matter most to them, in communities throughout the Comox Valley. It serves as a trusted community resource, addressing issues and leveraging opportunities. By astute management of a growing portfolio of permanent endowments, the Comox Valley Community Foundation uses investment earnings to provide grants to charitable agencies whose projects contribute to enriching lives in the region.
