Thunder Bay Community Foundation Grants

Thunder Bay Community Foundation Grants

Over $200,000 to local charities

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  December 5, 2019  (LSN)  Last night the Thunder Bay Community Foundation distributed over $200,000 in grants to registered charities in Thunder Bay and District.

The Thunder Bay Community Foundation understands that the needs of our community are always changing and that’s why, for over 48 years, they’ve distributed over $6.2 million in grants, scholarships and bursaries on behalf of their donors in support of a wide variety of charitable organizations. 

The Thunder Bay Community Foundation provided 34 grants to organizations throughout the District from programs and projects which support the arts, youth, and capital projects to social justice, health, animal welfare, medical research and more.

This year’s recipients included Hospice Northwest’s Heartsteps Grief Camp for children and adolescents – the first to ever be held in Northern Ontario, a new sensory circuit for the George Jeffrey Children’s Centre, to Magnus Theatre’s Reconciliation Project a community-based arts development project in which students from various high schools in Thunder Bay will come together to write and perform a play about reconciliation.

“Community foundations across Canada play a crucial role in how people give back where communities need it most. We connect people, families and companies with causes that inspire them. We pool resources, knowledge and expertise, working with others for even greater impact.” said new executive director, Alexandra Calderon.

 

“The Thunder Bay Community Foundation goal is to help create a more vibrant, healthy and engaged community. The grants we distribute are a big part of that. This wouldn’t be possible without our incredible donors whose passion for our community enables these grants whether it is for new and innovative projects, expanding successful programs or keeping essential services running.”

Copperfin Credit Union sponsored the grant reception continuing their long-standing commitment to making our communities better for everyone. The reception was held at Roots to Harvest and focused on celebrating the great work charities do in the community and learning about the amazing projects they are embarking on throughout the year.

The Thunder Bay Community Foundation, established in 1971, actively promotes community philanthropy for the long-term benefit of Thunder Bay and the surrounding area.
