E-mail Print

The Friends of the Galt Museum & Archives Society has made a significant first contribution of $15,000 to kick-start "The Friends of the Galt Museum & Archives Endowment" newly established at the Lethbridge Community Foundation.

The Friends Society has worked for the last few years towards the launch of the Fund, along with the Board of the Galt, with the aim of ensuring the longevity of the Galt, the preservation of the region's history, and the opportunity to educate
and create awareness for local residents and visitors from around the world.  

"As the mandate of the Galt is to preserve our history for generations to come,"
says Dr. Glenn Coulter, President of the Friends of the Galt Society, "the creation and support of an endowment fund is an important mechanism to help facilitate the achievement of this mandate in perpetuity."

According to Lucelle Prindle, Past President of the Galt Board of Directors, "the Board supports the establishment of the Endowment Fund as partially fulfilling our Strategic Plan goal of financial stability."  
For information on contributing towards the growth of the Endowment Fund, please
