BATH — On March 30, supporters of the Bath Community Fund (BCF) gathered for the third annual meeting at Victory Gallop, whose therapeutic horseback-riding program was supported with a $1,000 grant from BCF. The meeting provided participants a view of Victory Gallop’s program, shown above, and highlights of the fund’s accomplishments during the past year, including growing its endowment to more than $322,000 and awarding its first grants totaling $14,500 to nonprofits in Bath.

In addition, the event included the official launch of the “For Bath, Forever” endowment campaign to raise $2.018 million by Bath’s bicentennial in 2018 for the fund. An endowment of more than $2 million will enable the fund to grant at least $100,000 back into the community every year forever, according to fund officials.
