Local Community Funds in Grey and Bruce Counties
Community Foundation Grey Bruce is pleased to have 5 Community Funds under their umbrella.
A Community Fund differs from a regular endowed fund in that it has been created to support projects in a specific municipality in Grey or Bruce County.
The grants from each Community Fund are disbursed only to projects within that municipal boundary. Community Funds are managed by a volunteer team, including a representative from its municipality, and exist to enrich the quality of life for the people of that municipality by supporting projects of not-for-profit charitable organizations involving affordable housing, food banks, agriculture, recreation, seniors and education.
The community fund is in place to help the citizens of each municipality to keep their charitable donations working in their own area, participate in shaping the future by supporting the needs in their own community and create a lasting legacy for generations to come
Donors receive income tax receipts for all donations made to a Community Fund.
