Building an Educational Legacy – www.rrsmith.ca
CHES has been very fortunate to receive financial support from the R. R.Smith Foundation again this year.
We received a grant of $2000. The R. R.Smith Foundation supports educational projects in Canada and internationally. Funds are distributed to BC universities and to registered Canadian charities who meet the criteria of supporting public education.
The CHES directors applied for the grant and were very happy to be accepted to help with our education projects in Kenya and Tanzania. R.R. Smith Foundation members are mostly retired BC teachers who see the value of promoting education and social justice in Canada and overseas. The Foundation has over 15,000 members.
We will apply for a grant for the 2021 year and we are hopeful that the directors of the R.R. Smith Foundation will accept our application and award us a grant for 2021. We are very appreciative of their support.
