Foundational Support...

In the beginning when Grow Boys was nothing more than a conceptual idea, a breakfast meeting took place at the Botanica Restaurant inside Red Deer Lodge. I was there with Bruce Buruma, Executive Director of The Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools and two Directors of their Board. We shared breakfast and thoughts about what could become of Grow Boys Red Deer, and how the Foundation could support the effort. The rest, as they say, is history.

The Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools became the first philosophical and financial supporter of Grow Boys Red Deer. The Foundation is now in its third year of financial support of what we do, and we wouldn't be able to do it without them. The Foundation has been right there with us all along. We want to express our sincere thanks.

In addition to Grow Boys and our annual Knights in Training Conference, the Foundation supports many other worthy and important projects designed to support kids in their learning journey. The Foundation's mission, vision and values exemplify what they stand for and support. We truly appreciate the Foundation's perspective and effort to support kids from kindergarten to grade twelve within our community and school district.

The Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools support of Grow Boys Red Deer has been a catalyst for others to join in to support what we do.
Following suit with The Foundation for Red Deer Public Schools, the Red Deer Regional Catholic Education Foundation joined in with funds in support of our first Knights in Training Conference, and they continue to support our organization each year. Grow Boys Red Deer would like to extend a sincere thanks to the Red Deer Regional Catholic Education Foundation for what they do and for their ongoing support of what we do.

We hope to see representatives of both Foundations at the 2014 Knights in Training Conference on May 7 at the G.H. Dawe Community Center in Red Der, AB.
