The work of registered charities and not-for-profits in the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Region could not happen at the level it does without the support of the Community Foundation and the funders who so generously give. These are real people with real stories, sharing the difference the grants have made in their lives and the opportunities they might not otherwise have had. - Judy Underwood, in response to the June 2016 Granting Ceremony

In May 2006, the city of Kenora received a truly unique gift courtesy of Andrew Paterson with the arrival of a cuddly bear by the name of loonie bear. However loonie bear isn’t your ordinary bear, standing 8 feet tall, weighing 12,000 pounds, loonie bear doesn’t like to eat picnic baskets but would rather eat loonies and toonies!
