On May 11th to 14th of this year, John Barnard, the Fund Development Chair for the Foundation attended the Community Foundations of Canada national conference in Vancouver. The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation was able to secure scholarship support from The Winnipeg Foundation, The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company and the Thomas Sill Foundation.
John’s major observations were the vast amount of information and the range of subjects that were discussed. Most important for John was the opportunity to meet with and discuss issues with Community foundation members from small local foundations and foundation that recently started.

The Foundation is very grateful that John was able to attend this very important and useful meeting to learn more of how community foundations operate.
