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
