“Paying it forward,” a phrase thought to have originated in 1916, the same year G. Murray Forbes was born, is a great phrase to describe the result of G. Murray, Edna and Athol Forbes’ vision in establishing a charitable fund at the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation.
Murray and Edna Forbes were long time residents of Regina, and were active and generous in their various community activities. Now, through the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation, the G. Murray and Edna Forbes Foundation is carrying on that generous work.
For over 45 years the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation has helped good people do great things! Astonished Inc. gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation, which is a public foundation serving the people of South Saskatchewan. The foundation builds permanently endowed charitable funds for the changing need and opportunities of the community and provides grants to eligible charitable organizations in culture, health, education, environment, recreation and social service sectors.
We are pleased to announce that the G. Murray and Edna Forbes Foundation Fund at the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation has generously donated $10,000 to Astonished! As our motto says, we truly are Better Together!
