History of the Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation
A brief history of the Lac du Bonnet and District Charitable Foundation.
The original inspiration for the Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation came from a long-time resident, Dr. Bob Rutherford. Unfortunately, Dr. Rutherford passed away before the Foundation became a reality.
In 2008 with seed money from the Town and RM of Lac du Bonnet, a number of community-minded people including Gus Wruck, Cliff Zarecki and Dr. Rutherford’s son Mauri came together and the Foundation became a reality. These three, along with Bob Draward, Gord Emberley, Daryll Hyslop, Brett Mitchell, Bill Russell and Donna Tschetter formed the original Board of Directors for the Lac du Bonnet and District Charitable Foundation.
The LDB Foundation was legally incorporated and received charitable status from Canada Revenue Agency in 2008.
