The Community Foundation Grey Bruce is inviting charities and non-profit organizations across Grey and Bruce counties to submit grant applications before the fall deadline of September 15.
Projects must benefit our community in one of the following categories: health and wellness, arts and culture, education and lifelong learning, living standards, the environment, and community connections. Each of these indicators of well-being are outlined in the Foundation’s Vital Signs® report. Vital Signs is a community check-up conducted by Community Foundations across Canada that measures the vitality of our communities, identifies significant trends, and supports action on issues that are critical to our quality of life. Applicants will be asked to describe how their project relates to the report.
Organizations can access the online application form, assessment criteria, and full Vital Signs report at www.communityfoundationgreybruce.com.
It’s advised that applicants confirm the eligibility of their project before beginning the application process by contacting the Grants Co-ordinator at the Foundation office at 519.371.7203.
Grants will be distributed to successful applicants in October 2020.
