Archives receive gaming grant

Cranbrook Archives Museum and Landmark has received a $45,000 Community Gaming Grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

“The Cranbrook Archives Museum and Landmark plays a significant role in preserving Cranbrook’s heritage and I’m glad this funding will enable the continued operation of the museum history program, a vital link to our past,” said Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett

Across British Columbia, 141 recipients will share over $2,663,704 in the latest round of grants from provincial gaming revenue.

Community Gaming Grants help local groups provide important services for British Columbia families.

Grant recipients in this round of funding offer programs in arts and culture, human and social services, PACs and sport.

Community Gaming Grants allow non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues to support direct delivery of a program that benefits the broader community.
