We create opportunities for dialogue and inclusion
Nurturing a vital community means reaching out and ensuring that people with different experiences and points of view are included, especially those who are often excluded. We bring people together to create opportunities for respectful dialogue and joint problem solving. We enthusiastically participate when invited to dialogues convened by others.

Grow a fund with the Matched Funds Program

Community Foundation Grey Bruce announces a Fund Matching Program for existing Endowed Funds, new start-up Endowed Funds or Community Funds within a Grey/Bruce municipality from October 1, 2013 to December 31, 2016, inclusive.

Grants of up to $10,000 each are available to assist in starting a new fund or increasing an existing Fund. As a limited amount has been set aside for this program, consideration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

To participate in this Matched Fund program, a signed contract plus $5,000 is required.

Matching will be given in a 1:2 ratio (for every $2 raised, the Foundation will match $1, up to a maximum of $10,000) during the period noted above. All matched funds will remain the property of the Foundation. Annual Investment Income will be re-invested into the fund until the endowed capital reaches $25,000.  Grants will be awarded only when the fund reaches $25,000.

Successful Applicants are required to:

  • Submit  a contract, signed by the signing authority(s) along with a cheque for $5,000 to guarantee participation in this  Program
  • Be aware that Flow-through granting with matching funds is not permitted
  • Report to the Community Foundation Grey Bruce yearly with a final report upon completion
  • Understand that the matching funds will be credited to the named fund on a quarterly basis.
  • Be willing to share promotional ideas with the Foundation to assist other funds to grow.
  •  Give permission to allow the Foundation to publicize  accomplishments
  •  Note: eligible securities will be accepted for this program
