PPP Featured Partner Victoria Foundation
In 2012 with the support and assistance of the Victoria Foundation, PPP was able to finalize realize our long time goal of creating an endowment fund to contribute towards our future sustainability. The fund was set up in honour of our first PPP Executive Director Phil Esmonde, who died in 2011, out of respect for his lifetime of contributions to peace and humanity. Our Esmonde Legacy Endowment fund was made possible through the generosity of PPP donors, which was matched by an anonymous donor through the Victoria Foundation. Recently PPP was able to grow our fund by another $9,000 thanks to the generosity of PPP Board Director Lorna Eastman, and another anonymous match made possible through the Victoria Foundation. Our fund currently sits at just under $40,000. Earlier this year PPP was a proud recipient of a Victoria Foundation grant towards our One Wave Gathering 2019 program from the Foundation’s Community Grants program, and we have been pleased to work with them as they present community-based workshops around the Global Sustainable development Goals.
