What is the Fund?
Every year when you start the fundraising campaign for the Base Charity Fund, many people are wondering how this fund works and where the money goes. The CFB Bagotville Charity Fund, founded in 1966, is separate from the Base Fund. It has its own board of directors that assesses grant applications based on well- established criteria. To receive money from the Charity Fund, applicant organizations must be formally registered as a charitable organization. They must also be accessible to the community of Bagotville. Amounts are also regularly used for direct assistance to members of the community in need. A sick child requesting care outside the region, a family that has lost everything in a disaster could receive help from the Fund .
