Gord Bamford, Canadian country music star and local Albertan, has set up the Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation in order to give back to his community.
“I started this charitable foundation as a way to give back to the youth and people less fortunate,” says Bamford.
The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation’s mission is to help families in need. It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child, something Bamford believes in. “I believe that this foundation can make a difference in a child’s life, either through education, music or sport,” he says.
The application process to establish the charitable foundation began back in April, 2009. The process is expected to be completed by October, 2009. Bamford feels the timing will be excellent as the holiday season, typically a time for giving, will soon be approaching.
