As I write, summer is winding down. It’s been a wonderful season, with lots of sunny weather, clear blue water, and fun times with friends and family. Now our community is returning to its peaceful off-season self!
Although Grand Bend is getting quieter, this is an exciting time at Grand Bend Community Foundation as we prepare to make our annual grants.
Each year we invite organizations with ideas for making our community better to apply for financial support. The deadline for applications is September 30. Then a group of community leaders gathers to review the applications and allocate the funds we have available.
How do we decide which projects to support?
We look for innovative ideas that meet community needs and will have a real impact on the people we serve. It’s not always an easy process—there are so many good projects. But when we arrive at our decisions, it feels great. We know we’re helping to make great things happen!
