Cortes Island Foundation
We met today with a couple of prospective new board members as we build the organisation. I was invited as an adviser to this conversation as I convened the original founding board of directors. The Cortes Island Foundation’s vision is that Cortes becomes a thriving community that fosters a culture of giving now and for all time in respectful relationship with our natural home. Their mission is to facilitate strategic gifting in support of community needs and priority projects. The Foundation will be a repository for our collective financial generosity intended to support community efforts. The Cortes group is connected into the Community Foundations of Canada who has offered a great deal of support in their formation.
