When the banner was unfurled today, the team at Pathstone learned that they were the winners of a $50,000 prize to be directed to the Walk-In Clinic. The Foundation was a top 10 finalist in iA Financial Group’s Canada-wide Philanthropic contest.
Votes determined the winners and ultimately the amount of money that was gifted.
“Thanks to overwhelming support from those who voted, we were able to secure a $50,000 donation to be directed to the Walk-In Clinic Extended Hours Program. With the recent suicides making news in Niagara, the community has been pushing even harder for better access to mental health care. We know how important it is for children, youth and families across Niagara to get this kind of support without delay.”
