Foundry fundraising meets $2 million goal
It is with extraordinary pride and gratitude that we announce the completion of our ‘Not Alone’ campaign to raise $2 million to support the opening of Foundry Kelowna.
That was the word from Doug Rankmore, CEO of the KGH Foundation and Shelagh Turner, executive director of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) in Kelowna in announcing the completion of a fundraising partnership between two local, non-profit organizations that has been a remarkable success.
In just seven months, the KGH Foundation and CMHA Kelowna have succeeded in their goal to raise the funds necessary to open Foundry Kelowna, a new integrated care centre aimed at supporting youth and families struggling with mental health and substance issues.
