We Tackle Pressing Issues
We believe philanthropy has a role to play in addressing some of the most pressing issues of our time. We tackle tough problems on many fronts through our grantmaking, investments, research, convening, communication and participation in the public policy process. We work with other foundations, organizations, business and governments in our region and across the country on problems that require shared action.
Vital Signs Community Report
Welcome to the first Vital Signs report produced by Community Foundation Grey Bruce. This report contains important data on six topics related to life in Grey Bruce: health & wellness, the environment, living standards, arts & culture, education & lifelong learning, and community connections. Our aim is that this Vital Signs report will be an agenda-setting toolâ€”a list of priorities for our community to consider in the coming years. The report will also assist the Foundation in establishing our granting priorities. We hope a successful Vital Signs report will generate discussion, forge new partnerships towards collective impact, and ultimately result in a healthier community and a better place to live.
This report is part of a nation-wide movement that involves Community Foundations from coast to coast to coast, coordinated by the Community Foundations of Canada. The exercise of producing a Vital Signs report draws upon local knowledge through input from volunteers and organizations, providing a snapshot of the vitality of our community. The report is also a call to action towards improving the quality of life for all people of Grey Bruce. More than 65 communities in Canada and around the world are using Vital Signs to mobilize the power of community knowledge for greater local impact.
