Community Foundation provides Fall grants to 35 organizations

Community Foundation Grey Bruce is congratulating thirty-five organizations that are receiving grant dollars through Fall Community Grants and 2023 Capital Grant applications. $191,000 will support charitable programs and capital projects right across our community this fall and into 2024.

“The applications approved for capital funding address our recent focus on housing, and on community supports for families” says Stuart Reid, Executive Director of Community Foundation Grey Bruce. Requests from Garafraxa Non-Profit Homes Inc, Safe ‘N Sound Residence, and The Women’s Centre Grey & Bruce Inc, as well as the Egremont Optimist Club and Owen Sound Little Theatre were approved.

Fall Community Grants of up to $3,000 each will help organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grey Bruce and their Youth Council – Students for the Future project that is investing in a youth-driven, mentor-supported model of leadership skills development. The Reider Cup Endowed Fund’s 2023 grant supported this project and is one of 179 endowed funds that Community Foundation Grey Bruce manages. The Foundation’s annual impact totals more than $800,000 annually, thanks to the generosity of community-minded donors.
