Sources Resources Centre has relaunched its foundation with a new name, logo, board of directors and website.

Sources Community Resources Foundation – formerly Peace Arch Community Services Foundation – provides funds for Sources to maintain a food bank and volunteer dental clinic, run an in-demand hot lunch program for women and children and support community resources that aren’t government-funded.

Based in the Miramar offices at 1461 Johnston Rd., funds are raised through fundraising, bequests and donations.

Sources CEO David Young described the launch as “an exciting change for us.”

“We believe the alignment of the name of the foundation with the Resource Centres under the Sources identity will help us evolve into a stronger presence – one that donors can rely on to translate their dollars into impact that is local, visible, measurable and, most of all, helpful.”

Foundation launchThe Sources Foundation was launched Tuesday (June 23) at a private event, where several donors were recognized for significant contributions totaling $150,000. Five directors were elected just prior to the launch, and a dedicated website with a focus to online giving has been created, giving interested donors a choice to support one of four program areas: poverty relief, families and children, community support or area of greatest need.

“We tried to make it clear and simple for people to learn about what we do and support our work,” Young said in a news release.
