“People donate because they believe what we do is worthwhile and get that a lot of what we do has no price tag on it,” said Atlas Coal Mine executive director Linda Digby.
Dinosaur Valley Heritage Society president Brent Noland said, “I love the name of this grant: ‘Community Spirit’. For us, it shows that the government understands that the well-being of a community's spirit is important.”
The society will use the funds in the revitalization of the East Coulee School Museum.
The Community Spirit Donation Grant Program matches donations made by Albertans.
These East Coulee organizations received word of the program’s funding at the same time as the 12 other non-profits in Drumheller.
