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

Community Foundation Directors and Volunteers Attend the Ladies Luncheon

Community Foundation Directors and Volunteers enjoyed attending the Annual Ladies Luncheon at the Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club on Thursday July 24, 2014. The event was in support of the Yacht Club and the Women’s Shelter Saakaate House Endowment Fund with the Community Foundation. In addition to the stunning weather, the guests enjoyed a delicious lunch, the excitement of bidding at a silent auction and a wonderful spirit of fellowship. The Community Foundation extends a sincere thank you to organizers Karen Dunlop and Charlotte Sytnyk, Master of Ceremonies Ashleigh Banfield, all participating merchants and all guests for making the event a wonderful success!
