Created as a legacy gift in 2013, Enderby & District Financial established a charitable endowment with the First West Foundation to generate ongoing funding in support of the community of Enderby and area F of the North Okangan Regional District.
During the 2016/17 school year, the Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society (NS3) will give fifth grade students from the Nanaimo region the opportunity to take part in their citizen science project.
First West Foundation’s purpose is to help create resilient and empowered communities, and this starts with encouraging resilient and empowered youth. With a Valley First Community Endowment grant of $5,950 to the Go Girls!
The Foundation was created on the vision of helping create vibrant and healthy communities. By working in partnership with local organizations, the Foundation seeks to actively contribute to meaningful projects that make a positive and lasting impact upon community life.
