“The Community Services Recovery Fund is a $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support charities and non-profits as they focus on how to adapt their organizations for pandemic recovery. Now more than ever, charities and non-profits are playing a key role in addressing persistent and complex social problems faced by all communities. The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what charities and non-profits need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic.”
The Michael Hamende Memorial Minor Hockey Fund was created in 2020 by Michael’s family as a way to give back to the community in a way that was very important to Michael – through hockey.
This fund allows the Beausejour Brokenhead Minor Hockey Association (BBMHA) the chance to help early years players start off the best they can. Whether it’s running BBMHA sponsored clinics or purchasing new equipment, Michael’s family memorial fund is committed to supporting minor hockey in Beausejour – forever!
Flow Through Funds are a great tool for different groups in our community to partner with the BRCF for fundraisers.
Usually, these groups will be fundraising for specific capital projects that could require tens of thousands of dollars to complete.
Partnering with the Foundation benefits two-fold. First, the organization gains additional exposure from our donor base as well as our online presence. The admin team at the BRCF handles all the back end work, and cuts that organization a cheque at the end of the fundraising period.
Second, those who wish to donate to this project benefit by receiving a charitable tax receipt from the Foundation for their contribution. Win-win, right?
Created for the community, by the community – Current and former Beausejour/Brokenhead citizens, local businesses and community organizations have donated to the Brokenhead River Community Foundation, helpings us to be an accessible, innovative and transformative force in our community.
Fun Fact: The Brokenhead River Community Foundation is NOT just one lump sum of money that is drawn from for scholarship, bursary, and grant awards. In fact, the Foundation maintains 19 different endowment funds that all help Beausejour and Brokenhead thrive.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing with you all the different funds that you can donate to, and benefit from.

“This is a great opportunity to support your community through the Brokenhead River Community Foundation,” says Danielle Gerylo, Communications and Marketing Coordinator of the BRCF. “Of course, we welcome gifts at any time, but giving between Nov. 14 – 20 means extra support. We’re so excited to see what our community can accomplish!”
Gifts made between Nov. 14 – 20 will help grow Brokenhead River Community Foundation’s capacity to support a wide range of charitable projects in Beausejour and the RM of Brokenhead for generations to come. Donations to a community foundation are pooled and permanently invested. Gifts are never spent and the money will always stay in the community. Every year, these investments generate money that is distributed to support local charitable needs. Community foundations provide support that lasts forever. Manitoba is home to 56 community foundations – more than any other area of the country. Every year, these foundations invest millions of dollars into a wide range of local charitable projects. They help ensure our hometowns are vibrant and thriving. For more information, contact Danielle Gerylo at (431) 343-2723 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
