Last December we received a $3,000 Community Gaming Grant from the Province of British Columbia. The funds were used for direct program costs for EagleWatch during the 2022 – 2023 season. The Gaming Branch requested that we not publicize the grant until it had been officially announced by the Province, and that is the reason for our delaying this post until now.
The Community Gaming Grants program distributes funds from commercial gambling revenues to not-for-profit community organizations throughout our province. Programs and services which are established and maintained by volunteers and provide clear community benefit may be eligible for the grants.
This is the third time we have received such a grant. We are very grateful for the support we have received from the Community Gaming Grants program.
