The Blue Mountain Village Foundation is pleased to announce that a donation will be made to Elephant Thoughts Educational Outreach.  A donation of $5,300 will be presented to the organization on August 27th, 2014 at 9:30 am in the Blue Mountain Village in front of Sunset Grill.  Tara Bailey (Director General), Susan Morley (Board), Janine Fleury, Ed Bowles and Erik Koopman will receive a cheque from the Foundation board members; Bruce Melhuish and Don Braden.

"The Foundation reviewed many applications for funds and all were very deserving," says  Don Braden, President of the Foundation. "We chose to sponsor positions in Elephant Thoughts' After School Program in the Georgian Triangle to ensure that disadvantaged children can learn and grow.."

"The reintroduction of the Elephant Thoughts After School Programs in the Georgian Triangle has been a resounding success.  To date nearly 1000 children participated in this flagship program and more schools are booked to launch in the fall.  Teachers are expressing gratitude for the program which not only brings more hands-on science into the classroom but helps schools deliver an effective leadership and character building educational piece through the student mentorship component. Thanks to the Blue Mountain Village Foundation for their generous donation to enable Elephant Thoughts to access students through this program for years to come. " says Jeremy Rhodes Executive Director, Elephant Thoughts Educational Outreach.

The Blue Mountain Village Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in our local communities through its financial support of registered charitable organizations whose activities provide benefit to the residents of our local communities, with an emphasis on children and family programs.
