$25,000 awarded to BGCO through Ted Rogers Community grants
VANCOUVER, February 18, 2021 – Rogers Communications announced it has awarded $25,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Okanagan through the Ted Rogers Community Grants.
Grants were awarded to 10 British Columbia organizations this year which are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of youth.
Through programs in innovation, entrepreneurship, mentorship and community leadership, these organizations are providing critical supports to youth across B.C. by building confidence and pride, while helping them achieve their highest potential. Rogers is proud to have provided more than $800,000 in grants to 54 organizations in British Columbia since the program launched in 2017.
“As organizations across B.C. continue to face challenges due to the pandemic, support from Ted Rogers Community Grants are helping them provide critical programs for youth in our communities,” said Rick Sellers, President of B.C. Region, Rogers Communications. “This year, that support is more important than ever before, and we are proud to lean in to help the next generation of youth achieve their dreams through the pandemic and beyond.”
Supporting youth through grants, together with Ted Rogers Scholarships, is one of the key ways Rogers is committed to working in partnership with communities to help meet critical needs of our residents and neighbours.
