Scotiabank Fundraiser matching program

Team Scotia volunteers and members of the Fernie Elks Lodge: Bernie Pulsifer

The Scotiabank’s team Scotia volunteer program has once again assisted the Fernie Elks Lodge with their fundraising and have presented the Elks Lodge with a $500 cheque.  The money has been earmarked for a donation to the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children.

The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children, is the Elks and Royal Purple national charity dedicated to assisting children of families in need, and has helped many Elk Valley families.  The Elks and Royal Purple of Canada also support a national Drug Awareness Program.  This program is aimed at prevention through education to assist in eliminating the illegal use of drugs.

Through the Team Scotia Community Program (TSCP), the bank matches up to $5,000 raised by teams of five or more Scotiabank employees through their local charitable fundraising activities. In 2009, more than 2,000 fundraising activities received over $5.6 million from TSCP.
