2023 Spring Grants Cycle
Our 2023 Spring Grant Cycle was extremely successful with 4 Organizations and their projects approved for a total of $11,408.00! You will see upgrades at the Community Event Centre, Mental Health Training at the North Renfrew Family Services, another Art Workshop held by the Seniors Friendship Club, and THEOP presenting the production of Love Bomb!
We want to thank the following Funds for providing the funding for these projects: Mary Moore Ecological Fund, Hinds Family Fund, Health Care Fund NRFS Fund, Tucker Tennant Fund, Arts & Education Fund, Milton Family Fund, and Cuthbert Family Fund.
Join us in celebrating these amazing projects and watch for announcements in October about the fall grant cycle! To support further Grants please donate at www.drdcf.ca/donate. Even a small donation makes a huge difference!
Every dollar donated counts towards the continued well-being of our community.
Your contribution is part of that lasting legacy.
Who receives grants?
We support the registered charities in our area, to allow them to do the work that is needed in the community
How does it work?
Very simply. Donations made to the Foundation are invested in a professionally managed portfolio of fixed income and equities. Then, the yearly earnings from these investments are returned to our community in the form of grants to qualifying recipients every year. Almost all the capital from donations remains invested in perpetuity to keep generating earnings.
To make a difference and give back to the community by enhancing the quality of life for people who live in the Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara and Maria, and Rapides des Joachim area.
People who care about our community: individuals, families, current and former residents, and organizations
