Town­ship­pers’Re­search and Cul­tural Foun­da­tion (TRCF) is pleased to an­nounce that twenty-four projects and ac­tiv­i­ties serv­ing the English-speak­ing com­mu­nity of the his­tor­i­cal East­ern Town­ships re­ceived grants at the an­nual lun­cheon on Tues­day, April 16, in Ma­gog.

Since 1987, Town­ship­pers’ Foun­da­tion has awarded thou­sands of grant dol­lars to lo­cal, grass­roots or­ga­ni­za­tions and projects in her­itage, arts, health, so­cial ser­vices, ed­u­ca­tion, and re­search.

At the 2013 lun­cheon, close to $39,000 in grants were awarded to projects cov­er­ing all points on the com­pass, from ed­u­ca­tional work­shops to aware­ness events, fes­ti­vals and re­search, youth ac­tiv­i­ties to se­nior sup­port, a fo­cus on farm­ing to prevent­ing fi­nan­cial fraud and more.

“It has been our plea­sure once again to help sup­port th­ese de­serv­ing projects which help fuse and strengthen our com­mu­nity through their ac­tiv­i­ties,” stated Jane Loiselle, Pres­i­dent, Town­ship­pers’ Re­search and Cul­tural Foun­da­tion. «It is so grat­i­fy­ing to see that our donors con­tinue to rec­og­nize how crit­i­cal their sup­port is to the Town­ships English-speak­ing com­mu­nity. Of course we can only give away what we re­ceive, so we hope to con­tinue to ac­cept do­na­tions that will en­able us to help oth­ers in our beau­ti­ful East­ern Town­ships.”
