Disability Endowment Fund
The Community Futures Development Corporation Disability Endowment Fund was established in 1999 with the Revelstoke Community Foundation. Annual grants from the fund are disbursed to local projects that assist entrepreneurs with disabilities, enhance access to educational opportunities for persons with disabilities or raise community awareness and understanding of issues relating to persons with disabilities.
This year a $2500.00 award was granted to Community Connections to help employ Leroy Bridge with the Food Recovery Program. The funding has enabled the program to grow exponentially with the recovery of over 41,000 lbs. of food in a mere 6 months.

And another $2500.00 award was granted to the Revelstoke Arts Council to host the Victoria Maxwell presentation. In support of Disability Employment Month, Victoria Maxwell’s FREE one-woman show, “That’s Just Crazy Talk” (victoriamaxwell.com) took place at the Revelstoke Performing Art Centre on Tuesday, Sept 20th.
