EPIC acknowledges and appreciates the following organizations for helping fund its programs and projects that benefit marginalized youth in Cape Breton.
Our major funding partner since 2004 has been The Law Foundation of Nova Scotia. The mandate of the Law Foundation and EPIC’s stated purposes are an excellent match. This synchronicity of goals allows EPIC the flexibility and the freedom to set its own course while always keeping in its sights in the direction that both organizations want to go.
Since 2010, we have been grateful to receive annual funding from the
Nova Scotia Justice Lighthouses Program

Our appreciation and thanks!
From its beginning, EPIC has run its programs and projects from year-to-year, based on uncertain funding. Part of the struggle with any community-based organization is providing services that fulfill the interests of funding sources while, at the same time, keeping the organization that meets those needs alive and well. EPIC has been successful at this for two reasons.
- Hours and hours of volunteer time have gone into researching funding sources, writing proposals and reports and working in partnership with governmental and private sources of funding.
- EPIC has been flexible and innovative in stretching itself to challenges that arise from funding issues.
EPIC has forged and maintained good relations with all levels of government, private foundations and corporations by offering accountability and integrity along with its well-managed, effective programs and projects.
