April 14, 2015: Members of the EFCL Board of Directors took a moment at the start of last week’s board meeting to drink a toast to the recent success of the EFCL’s 100th Anniversary Project.


On March 24, the EFCL received official confirmation that it had been awarded a grant of $500,000 from the provincial government. These funds will be used to help construct the project and should ensure that the first phase can go ahead as scheduled next spring.  Located in Hawrelak Park, the project will feature a plaza, artificial stream and pathway system with a series of displays about community leagues.


Earlier last month, the EFCL was also the recipient of a $28,000 grant from the province and a $15,000 grant from the Edmonton Heritage Council.  These funds, along with $13,000 from the EFCL, will be used to hire a research and display coordinator, who will collect material for the onsite and website displays that commemorate the contributions of leagues and their volunteers to the City of Edmonton.

In addition, the EFCL received a donation of $2,000 from the Fraternal Order of Eagles last month that will go toward the project.


In related news, the board of directors also put the finishing touches on a donor recognition strategy, which will facilitate the launching of the public portion of its fundraising campaign in May.
