The annual revenue generated from the investments are then given in the form of grants to the non-profit sector.

The announcement came following an event held in Owen Sound recently where former Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Paul Martin, was the guest speaker.  The monies raised at that event, kick-started the Foundation's new scholarship program (for AYEP) through its 'Smart & Caring' education initiative and the two new scholarships will bear his name ... 'The Paul Martin Smart & Caring Endowment Fund'.
