Terry E. Campbell, The Forever Legacy Foundation

Port Stanley, Ontario - The Forever Legacy Foundation has approved charitable grants of $255,900.00 in the communities of London/Middlesex and Elgin/St. Thomas.

"Global political and environmental instability this year resulted in a seesaw trend in investment performance that yielded a slight increase in the revenue available for grants in 2017.", said Terry Campbell, Chair of the Foundation.

"Our focus will always be to help the needy in our communities. Since this is Canada's sesquicentennial year, to celebrate, our Foundation decided to honor all Veterans in our community by approving special grants with this objective. ", added Mr. Campbell. "Grants for Cenotaph restorations in London commenced last year and continued in St. Thomas, Ontario this year.

Additionally, grants for Veteran's programs at Parkwood Hospital in London; and the full funding of a PTSD Service Dog for a local Veteran (a 10 year program) was also approved. We must remember our Veterans."

The Forever Legacy Foundation is managed solely by unpaid volunteers. Expenses are restricted to endowment investment fees and an annual audit required by Canada Revenue Agency.

100% of net annual earnings on endowment funds are granted for charitable purposes.

The Foundation's asset base of over $6.5 Million continues to grow with donations and pledged bequests.

This year’s grants follow.
