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

2016 Mike Richards Charity Golf Tournament Continues to Support Community Needs

For the sixth year in a row, the Mike Richards Annual Charity Golf Tournament is supporting the efforts of the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation, in helping to improve community living and the quality of life for citizens and visitors to the region. This year’s event netted $26,000, shared evenly between the Community Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society. The total of Mike’s Charity Hockey Camp Endowment Fund and Charity Golf Endowment Fund have grown to $183,000, in support of community needs. We extend our thanks to all event sponsors, including Donny B and T Bay Tel, as presenting sponsors and the many dedicated volunteers.
