BCM (Bertie and Clinton Mutual) Insurance announce another $124,000 in grants to community groups

In 2019, BCM (Bertie and Clinton Mutual) Insurance Company launched their Community Grants Program with a commitment in excess of $200,000.
Their goal through this program is to strengthen local non-profit organization’s capacity to continue to do their great work in serving Niagara’s communities.

At a recent Board meeting, the directors approved grants to nine Niagara-based organizations. John Dekker, Vice-Chair of the Board who also sits on their
Grants Committee noted, “We received many wonderful applications and the decision-making process was both invigorating and challenging. The groups
we selected serve children, seniors, immigrants, refugees and adults with developmental disabilities. Many of the organizations provide programs across
Niagara supporting the community that supports BCM. Each grant recipient shared how the grant will aid them in meeting their established objectives.
Organizations receiving grants include:
Community Support Services of Niagara $18,029
Fort Erie Multicultural Centre $6,007
Hospice Niagara $10,000
Mainstream Services $10,000
Community Care St. Catharines Thorold $ 3,500
Open Arms Mission $11,786
St. Patrick’s Catholic Elementary School $25,000
Welland Heritage Council $15,000
Westview Centre 4 Women $25,000

There have been changes made to the program for 2020 which will be reflected on the website by the end of January.
