Libro awards more than $500,000 through the 2015 Prosperity Fund
Libro today announced the recipients of the 2015 Prosperity Fund, where Libro is investing more than $500,000 to support programs and projects across southwestern Ontario that are helping to grow regional prosperity in three focus areas: economic development, youth leadership and money smarts.
“Libro exists to grow prosperity in southwestern Ontario by transforming banking, and the Prosperity Fund is just one of the ways we support that,” said Steve Bolton, Libro Credit Union President and CEO. “We are very excited by the diverse number of projects who received grants this year. Growing prosperity is a collective effort, and we can accomplish so much more through collaboration and partnership.”
Libro’s Prosperity Fund invested in 31 organizations and community groups whose initiatives support entrepreneurship, financial knowledge and career skill development for young people – all aimed at growing prosperity across the region.
