Deadline extended for Suzy Hamilton Fund nominations

May 31 is the new date for applications

The Suzy Hamilton Legacy Fund was created for the purpose of supporting the continuation of Hamilton’s great environmental activism by self-identified women in the Kootenays.

The committee has extended the deadline for nominees for this year’s award until May 31. Nominees can be sent to the committee at mclboyd@gmail.com. Please provide the name and contact information for the nominee, as well as a short paragraph describing your reason for the nomination. We welcome the re-submission of nominees from previous years.

As the cash value of the Suzy Hamilton Legacy Fund endowment grows, the award amount increases, and currently sits at $843.50. The award committee encourages donations so that Hamilton’s legacy continues to grow.

Please check out the Osprey Community Foundation (https://ospreycommunityfoundation.ca/) to make a donation, so that we can continue to honour women environmental activists in a financially meaningful way.
