Message from the Executive Director

Hello friends,

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Community Foundation Grey Bruce.  

2018 is going to be a busy year and I hope to see you at many of the exciting community events across our region.

Our Spring Granting Fair and Non Profit workshop is happening on March 14 at the Owen Sound Legion.  This is the second year we are offering non profits and charities the opportunity to meet around the table with representatives of eight funding bodies from across Ontario.  The "speed dating" format creates alot of excitement and encourages many valuable encounters over the morning's activities.  Come and meet the funders!

Our spring deadline is April 15 for applications to our Community Grants program.  Visit the "For Grantseekers" button on the navigation bar to gain access to the online application forms.  Please reach out to our Grants Coordinator, Wendy, to make ensure of your project's eligibility and for pointers on putting together a good application.

The Foundation is also continuing to work with youth from our region, a result of our Vital Conversations held last November.  Watch this site for the launch of several short video testimonials developed by area young people that gives them a platform to talk about their perspective on life in Grey Bruce. 

While online communication provides immediate connection, sometimes it is nice to pick up the phone and talk with a person.  If you have questions or concerns or want to discuss what the Foundation can do for you and your family, give me a ring at 519 371 7203.  As our slogan says, "We're here for good."

 

Stuart Reid

Executive Director
