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

Thank you Thomas Sill Foundation

We took the opportunity to say thank you to the Directors of the Thomas Sill Foundation, for their wonderful 2016 challenge gift of $25,000.
