At a time when many community organizations are in need of support, three Calgary charities will be receiving donations of $4,000 to $12,000 from the 2020 Field Law Community Fund Program.
Over 111 applications were submitted for consideration this year from Calgary to Edmonton to the Northwest Territories, each one explaining the work they do in the community and how the fund program could help them with that work. This year, the Field Law Community Fund had $60,000 to award to several charities.
“This has been a year like no other, and we recognized that many Calgary groups and organizations have suffered a loss of funding and support. Our Field Law team had the opportunity to vote to select the recipients of this year’s Community Fund, and we are so proud of their choices,” said Jeremiah Kowalchuk, managing partner with Field Law.
The first Calgary charity selected is The Doorway, a group that helps homeless youth join society by teaching young people lifelong skills, problem-solving, goal-setting and planning. The Doorway will be receiving $12,000 in support of its Doorway Approach program which aims to help young people transition off of the streets by changing the way they view themselves and the world around them.
