Foundation being awarded grant

The M. Kopernik Foundation is receiving a Community Gaming Grant to support residential care services

We are pleased to announce that the M. Kopernik Foundation is receiving a Community Gaming Grant worth $58,000 to support residential care services at The Kopernik Lodge in Vancouver.

The Community Gaming Grant Program allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Gaming grants are awarded in the categories of Sports, Public Safety, Arts and Culture, Environment and Human and Social Services.

From Tony Jochlin, Chair of the M. Kopernik Foundation
“Our Foundation is committed to providing the best care for our seniors and to enhancing the life of our community. We are very appreciative of the Community Gaming Grant as it will allow us to provide additional services for our residents and members of the community, such as massage, music and aroma therapy, which otherwise we would not be able to afford. This kind of help is truly invaluable for a non-profit organization like ours.”
