Giving for good: the Forster’s story

This past November, we had the honour and delight to announce a $3.1 million gift from Carole and Clint Forster, facilitated by the Victoria Foundation and RBC Phillips Hager & North Investment Counsel. That gift has been a booster pack in Threshold’s ability to provide safe homes where youth can create brighter futures. The following video captures both our gratitude, and a little more of the Forster’s story.
