Smart and Caring Communities Fund
Start date: 1 February, 2017
End date: 1 July, 2017
In 2017, we are responding to the Governor General's challenge of building a more smart and caring nation by launching our Smart and Caring Communities campaign. Through this campaign, donors will be supporting a critical moment in the Foundation's history as we build a culture of involvement, engagement and collaboration, today and for generations to come.
Canada will celebrate its 150th birthday this year. We aim to secure gifts of $1000 from 150 people in our community to grow our Smart and Caring Communities Fund as we work towards ensuring sustainable funding is available for our area's charitable organizations for the next 150 years.
Nature of the Project Reach
All charitable organizations within the North Bay Area will be eligible for grants from this fund.
Our priority is to strengthen our community as a whole by helping to develop its smaller working parts. Specifically, your $1000 contribution will support initiatives that will improve organizations from a wide spectrum of areas; arts & culture, physical well being, mental health, the environment, youth, animal care, and more.
