Council Approved 3-Year Operating Grant to Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum
The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum has been an annual recipient of Operating Grant funding from Greenview over the last five years. With the previous agreement expiring at the end of 2023, an application was received for continued support of the facility. Council agreed to enter into a 3-year agreement providing $150,000.00 annually to assist with the operations and promote this valuable facility.
Capital Funding Request from Rising Above Ministry Approved
Rising Above Ministry is a non-profit organization that provides support to those facing homelessness, addictions, and patterns of criminal behaviour by providing life skills, personal and spiritual development, employment training and emotional woundedness support. They have launched a fundraising campaign to build a new facility on their current site for the much-needed space, as this program has an extensive waitlist. Greenview Council authorized Administration to enter into an agreement for a financial commitment of $333,333.33 for the construction of a new facility, contingent on the security of the balance of the funding for the project.
