In a remarkable act of generosity, Bill and Joan Humphries have donated $5,000 to establish a new permanent fund at the Sunshine Coast Community Foundation. Known as the "Bill and Joan Humphries Endowment", the capital will be invested in perpetuity and the annual earnings will be granted to support capital projects in the town, specifically the Gibsons Public Market. Sunshine Coast Community Foundation matched the initial $5,000 gift. Other generous donors have contributed $11,000, bringing the total capital to $21,000 as of June 11, 2018. Other donors are invited to add to the capital by contacting Wendy Francis at the Foundation at 604.741.7360.
