Vancity Helps Fund Indigenous Education at Burnaby Village Museum

Elementary students in Burnaby will gain a deeper appreciation of First Nations culture and history thanks to a generous donation from Vancity credit union.

On Wednesday, May 15, Vancity presented a $10,000 cheque to Burnaby School District and the Burnaby Village Museum (BVM). This money will support the inaugural Burnaby Indigenous Week of Learning for Burnaby elementary students this fall.
