On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff at the Stratford Perth Community Foundation, thank you to all our mayors, corporate partners, attendees and volunteers for your support of the 7th Annual Mayors’ Gala. Because of you, over $100,000 was raised to support our philanthropic mission to enrich the lives of people in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County
The Community Foundation's 2016 Grant Program is now closed and we announced our grant recipients at our Community Impact Celebration in June! Our 2017 Grant Program will start on December 1st - stay tuned for more details.
Thank you to our community organizations for applying for our Grant Program!
The Stratford Perth Community Foundation (SPCF) is an organization for everyone and unique because donations – large or small – are never spent but are combined and invested. The earned income is used to make grants to local charities year after year to build a vibrant not-for-profit sector in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County. To make all this work, we share our unique understanding of community needs and help mobilize and guide donors to specific community initiatives.. It is part of a national network of 191 community foundations across Canada and member of an international movement for community. The Community Foundation enables all residents to contribute to meaningful and lasting changes in communities throughout Perth County.
YOUR COMMUNITY MAKES YOU
AND YOU MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY
Like you, we envision a vibrant, not-for-profit sector in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County. To help achieve this we are building sustainable funding resources for each of our six geographies. These Smart & Caring Community Funds will respond to the ever-changing needs of our communities.
Last year we created Smart & Caring Community Funds in Stratford and North Perth. This year we are doing the same for St. Marys and Perth South followed by Perth East and West Perth in 2017. Each fund is being built by the people and for the people in that community to support its critical priorities, key projects and ongoing needs.
Meaning, donations raised in each community will stay in that community, now and forever.
The Stratford Perth Community Foundation enriches the lives of people in Perth County by providing support to charitable organizations through grants made possible by responsible stewardship of endowment funds.
