Across Canada more than 1,800 projects were approved this year.

The Resource Centre will use this grant to explore a Seniors’ Expertise Exchange on the Sunshine Coast – Seniors as Knowledge Philanthropists. This innovative idea takes traditional volunteering to the next level, one of volunteers sharing their knowledge and expertise and contributing to the success of organizations, agencies and small businesses. The outcome of this work will build community capacity.
