Boulet Family Establishes Logan Boulet Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation
Endowment fund to support causes that reflect and champion Logan’s values
Lethbridge, AB (June 27, 2019)—The Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta is honoured to announce the establishment of the Logan Boulet Endowment Fund. Established by Logan’s family, Toby, Bernadine, and Mariko Boulet, this fund will assist in sustaining the legacy of a bright and generous young man.
Grants from the Logan Boulet Endowment Fund will be directed by the Boulet family to support causes that were important to Logan, such as organ donation, youth participation in sport, and the Special Olympics. Donations to Logan’s fund are gratefully accepted by the Community Foundation on behalf of the Boulet family. Gifts are eligible for a tax-deductible donation receipt.
“Logan was wise beyond his years,” said Toby Boulet, Logan’s father. “He understood that service is the rent you pay to live your life, and he continually volunteered in many areas, not just sport. He also understood that giving time is as important as donating dollars to many organizations. We are so proud of the decisions Logan made and the way he led his life.” At the recent Friends of Logan Boulet Golf Tournament, volunteers wore a t-shirt with the slogan Happy to Help. “If you knew Logan or had only met him briefly, you knew he was happy to help. Creating the Logan Boulet Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation allows Logan and many others to symbolically wear this shirt. We should all be ‘Happy to Help,’” said Toby.
Logan passed away on April 7, 2018 from injuries sustained in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. His organs were donated, an act that prompted an outpouring of organ donation pledges and resulted in Green Shirt Day, a day to encourage organ donation registration.
“It is a privilege for us to work with the Boulet family as they continue to honour the life of their son, Logan, by giving back to the community,” said Executive Director Charleen Davidson. “Logan was raised to give back, and his giving spirit has had a tremendous impact on our community and our nation. We are proud to be able to incorporate Logan’s legacy into the work we do at the Community Foundation. We hope that this fund, and the continued love and support of their community, will help Toby, Bernadine, and Mariko in their healing process,” said Davidson.
