  CPS Foundation Delivers Grant to National Outreach Committee

June 2021

  • The CPS Foundation provided a $10,000 grant to the CPS-ECP Educational Department’s Outreach Committee for upgrading and expanding the use of the current Moodle platform which is used for both CPS-ECP Courses and Operations Training.
  • This funding was the result of an application received from Ottawa Squadron on behalf of the National Outreach Committee and supported by the National Educational Officer.
  • This grant was a matching grant made possible by a generous donation to the Foundation by Ottawa Squadron in the amount of $5,000, for which the Foundation is very appreciative.

Funding for National Membership Recovery Project

December 2020

  • The CPS Foundation provided a $33,600 grant to CPS-ECP in December 2020 to fully fund a National Membership Recovery Project planned for implementation during the Winter/Spring of 2021.
  • This funding was the result of an application received from the CPS-ECP National Membership Committee Chair, Bob Parke and supported by the CPS-ECP National Administrative Officer, Don Macintosh to facilitate efforts to recover CPS-ECP Members who had not renewed their Membership for one reason or another since 2018.
  • This included dedicating staff to directly assist members who have been experiencing technical difficulties accessing their on-line profiles within the CPS-ECP database.
  • We are pleased to be able to support a program that will provide such direct assistance to the CPS-ECP Membership.
