La Picasse, Centre Communautaire Culturel plays a pivotal role in the preservation and development of the Acadian and francophone community in Nova Scotia. The development of this fund allows Acadians to enjoy what their community has to offer for years to come.

The fund was established through an initial investment of $250,000 by the  l’Association du Centre marin Isle à Souris which was matched by the government of Nova Scotia bringing the initial investment for this fund to $500,000. The interest from the trust fund will be allocated annually to support La Picasse Community Cultural Centre.
