SIDNEY — Directors of The Lobstick Foundation are calling for grant applications from organizations across B.C. and Canada that help girls and women of all backgrounds seeking to develop their life and personal skills, or other professional and educational development, and are unable to do so because of personal or financial circumstances.

The Foundation will contribute a total of up to $40,000 in 2016 to organizations that meet its mandate and who complete and submit a grant application by March 31, 2016.

“The Lobstick Foundation is looking to support young girls and women who were born here or who are new to Canada, and need a helping hand to reach their scholastic and self-supporting goals,” said Laurie Salvador, a Notary in Sidney and Chair of the Foundation.

Grant application guidelines and forms are available online at lobstickfoundation.org/grants-and-donations.
