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

Smart and Caring Community Award Voting Process

As we approach our country’s 150th birthday in 2017, Canada’s Governor General David Johnston, Patron of Community Foundations of Canada, has challenged Canadians to imagine our country as it could be – a Smart and Caring Nation that holds promise for all. In recognition of this call to action, the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Regional Community Foundation, has  received 16 nominations of community-minded individuals who have made a real difference in the lives of others in this region.

Nominations have now closed  and four finalists have been  chosen. We thank everyone who took the time to nominate an individual. The voting process will now begin for the four finalists and conclude on October 30, 2015.

Please review the details for the four finalists and submit your vote by October 30, 2015. Votes will also be accepted by calling our office at 467-4427. The finalist with the most votes will be declared the winner of the Award and will be announced at our Granting Ceremony on November 4, 2015 at 7:00 pm at the Minis Hall, Super 8 Motel.

For more information, please contact our office at 467-4427.
