Fall Grant applications are open now!
Community Foundation Grey Bruce (CFGB) invites charities and non-profit organizations across Grey and Bruce Counties to submit grant applications for Kids Can Play Bruce Grey before September 15, 2022.
Over the past three years, CFGB has seen the number of applications for community grants supporting youth recreation decline drastically. Many after school and weekend opportunities had to close their doors for safety, this grant offers a boost to get back into the swing of things and launch new programs.
“Play is such an important way for our community to connect, make memories, and grow” says Stuart Reid, Executive Director. “We feel it’s important to help ensure that kids can make the connections that will shape their lives.”
Recreation encompasses sport, art and culture, education, music, and leisure activities for the youth of Grey Bruce. Projects must local youth and encourage play through one of these areas that have been identified to foster healthy communities in the Foundation’s Vital Signs® reports.
Eligible non-profits may apply to the Kids Can Play Bruce Grey grant for up to $3,000 to support their local projects.
Fall Community Grants are also receiving applications to support local non-profits and charities with their projects and programs that build community vitality. Requests for up to $5,000 are being accepted online until September 15, 2022.
