Community Foundation Grey Bruce builds community vitality now and for future generations by encouraging endowment building and philanthropic partnerships within Grey and Bruce counties. The Foundation grants to a wide variety of charities that, in turn, provide necessary services for the people of this region. The Foundation also offers leadership in identifying community issues and convening discussion.
Community Foundation Grey Bruce is one of 191 foundations across Canada — philanthropic agencies that pool funds to be professionally managed in the global marketplace. The capital is invested forever, creating an ongoing stream of interest revenue that supports grants for charities and social profit agencies in doing what they do best — making life better for everyone.
This year, Community Foundation Grey Bruce will be granting over $650,000 — a sizable investment in the health and well-being of all people in our region. The Foundation manages over 140 endowed funds, covering education, arts and culture, health care, environment, poverty reduction, recreation and more. We also have five active community funds that support initiatives in particular communities: Owen Sound, Meaford, Grey Highlands, Saugeen Shores, and Kincardine.
