For $10 each, you can purchase this local calendar, with 100% of the proceeds supporting the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies.

The calendar includes beautiful, local photographs donated by Cranbrook Photo, lots of information about local events, and last, but definitely not least, the chance to win daily prizes from amazing local businesses throughout 2020.

The 2020 Community Calendar makes a great gift for friends and family and is also a fantastic corporate gift for staff and customers.

“This is an important fundraiser for the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies,” said Michele Bates, CFKR Board President. “Proceeds from the Community Calendar help the Community Foundation to grow our 37 permanently endowed funds and to establish new funds.”

Zena Williams, publisher of the Cranbrook Townsman, brought this creative idea to Cranbrook and is a strong supporter of the Community Foundation’s sustainable approach to charitable giving.

Williams stated, “I love that the Community Foundation is building this permanent nest egg to benefit our community, now and in the future. The Cranbrook Townsman is proud to be part of building this legacy.”
