The Olive Tree Foundation celebrated community development at its Annual Appreciation Brunch on Sunday June 20, 2010.
“Successful public foundations that fund community initiatives can lead to community development,” said Muneeb Nasir, President of the Olive Tree Foundation.
The event, titled, ‘Leading Community Development’, recognized the Foundation’s contributions as one of Canada’s first Muslim granting agencies and public endowments, and recognized the Olive Tree Foundation’s donors and grant recipients.
The event was attended by a number of non-profit organizations, community workers and supporters of community development.
“Our annual event recognizes all those who are doing good works and providing services to our community,” Nasir told the audience in his opening remarks.
