If you're a not-for-profit organization looking for a bit of financial help, look no further.

Applications are now open for The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce's Legacy Fund.

"Our maximum funding is $3,000 per project. The applications will close at 4:30 p.m. on September 1 and if anyone wants the forms we have them on our website, www.drumhellerchamber.com, or at our office here behind the World's Largest Dinosaur," outlined Marley Henneigh, Chamber Services Coordinator.

"These applications are open until September 1 and the next round will be opened up in January with a deadline of March 1. You have to wait two years in between each application, so if you've gotten the application within the last two years you are not eligible until the next round," Henneigh added.

Some of the previous recipients of the Legacy Fund include DORVA, the East Coulee School Museum, the Wayne Community Association and the First Drumheller Boy Scouts.

"To date we've given away over $620,000 to a bunch of different non-profit groups in the community. We take a portion of the profits from the World's Largest Dinosaur admission and gift shop sales and put it into the legacy fund," concluded Henneigh.
