Through a generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Stratford Perth Community Foundation has developed a three year plan to create regional Smart & Caring Community Funds throughout our six geographies. You will see the Community Foundation become more involved in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County by engaging each municipality in building their own Community Fund to sustain a vibrant non-profit sector in their own community. This plan truly embodies the “give where you live” philosophy.
In 2015, our Smart & Caring Communities rollout started with North Perth and Stratford. In 2016 we are beginning our work with Perth South and St. Marys. Perth East and West Perth will launch their Smart & Caring Community Funds in 2017.
The donations raised in each community with stay in that community. That means, once created, each Smart & Caring Community Fund will benefit the community that built it, now and forever.
