Bernie-DalyBernie Daly was GROWMARK, Inc.’s Ontario Region Manager and a dedicated co-operative champion. One of Bernie’s goals before he passed away in 2009 was to find a way to support the growth of the Co-operative Young Leaders program. Through the Bernie Daly Memorial Fund, he continues to do just that.

The main objective of the fund is to provide resources that will help support youth who cannot participate in the Co-operative Young Leaders program due to financial restraints or lack of sponsorship. Daly’s main concern was to ensure that all youth in the co-operative sector had a chance to attend CYL – even if financial restrictions presented a barrier for participation. The Foundation manages a Permanent Capital Fund and Community Investment Fund in Bernie Daly’s name.
