Nineteen Revelstoke non-profits have received funding from the Columbia Basin Trust for technology-related initiatives.
Of the $1 million granted to 178 organizations, Revelstoke applicants received around $85,000.
“Non-profits play an important role in community development, but we’ve heard that a lack of technological infrastructure can create barriers to delivering vital services to residents,” said Michelle d’Entremont, delivery of benefits manager with the Trust. “We’re pleased to help so many groups close technology gaps and improve operations and service delivery in their communities.”
Community Connections received the largest amount at $25,000.
