Congratulations to all 2021 Grant Recipients

Did you hear? This spring we granted over $290,000 to local charities and community projects in our region. Grants ranged from $1,000 to $15,000 supporting a variety of causes – responding to urgent needs, funding operating priorities, advancing programs and services, and bolstering new ideas.

We are thrilled to be able to fund so many important local programs and services.

It’s here! Our 2020 Community Report

2020 was a year like no other. Communities throughout our region came together to support those who needed assistance. Your gifts had impact. Your kindness brought hope. Thank YOU.

Through the generosity of many, we were able to grant $548,619 from three granting streams to help sustain vital local programs and projects in Stratford, St. Marys and across Perth County.

We are grateful for your confidence in our Foundation’s work, and very proud to be your partner in philanthropy today, tomorrow, and forever.

Today we say, “see you later” – but not goodbye –  to our long-time friend and colleague, Amanda Willie, as she and her family embark on a new chapter of their lives in Newfoundland.

Amanda joined our Foundation eight years ago and has been a vital part of our team ever since. Over the years, her role has grown as our organization has grown and she was always “all in” when new opportunities presented themselves. She is a dedicated and enthusiastic team member with a passion to help others and we will miss her.

The Community Foundation family wishes Amanda all the best in her new adventures.
