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
