Funding Announcement – Alberta Culture

chequepreso AB Culture

BGCBigs held our Annual General Meeting on Monday, September 9th.  So many great guests and stories and we’ll be sharing over the course of the next few weeks.  A very special announcement and cheque presentation were made by Alberta Culture Minister Heather Klimchuk.

A commitment of $100,000 was made to ensure the completion of our McCauley Club.  This important community hub has undergone significant renovations and is home away from home to hundreds of our community’s children and youth.  It also serves as office, recreation and meeting space for a variety of groups and activities.

An additional $75,000 was also committed in order for BGCBigs to continue the important work of educating kids about their own health and building a healthy physical future for themselves and our families.  Cool Moves is a Nationally developed program that combines healthy cooking and eating, recreational activity and positive choices to build brighter futures for kids.

For both of these significant investments in our children and communities, we are extremely grateful.
