This year marks the 25th Anniversary for Community Foundation Grey Bruce! Hear from founders Ovid Jackson & Lyle Love on how the foundation got started back in 1994, and from Executive Director, Stuart Reid on how the foundation is having an impact on the community today!
Community Foundation Grey Bruce in partnership with Georgian College and their Social Enterprise Network of Central Ontario (SENCO) is offering eligible organizations working to do good across Central Ontario the opportunity to access up to $100,000 in non-repayable capital through the Investment Readiness Program (IRP). This is part of a national initiative led by Community Foundations of Canada and funded by the Government of Canada that will provide $18.5 million across the country to seed and grow social enterprise.
What do you want to see happen in the Next 25 years? The Next25 Fund will provide grants to charities and non profits whose projects address priorities that are identified in the Vital Signs®report. Supporting health & wellness, arts & culture, education & life long learning, living standards, the environment and community connectedness are indicators of community well being.
