From food vouchers to free fiddle lessons, programs that support and enrich local residents will receive funding from the Huronia Community Foundation.

Through the agency’s ‘Smart and Caring' grants, 31 local charities and organizations will share in almost $21,500.

Successful applicants qualified with projects in one or more of HCFs' six giving categories, including arts and culture, community services, health care and mental health, seniors, sports and recreation and youth and scholarships.

Among the 2024 recipients are the Georgian Bay Food Network with its Food 2 Door program, BGC North Simcoe (previously Boys and Girls Club North Simcoe) with its summer eat well project, the dollars with sense project proposed by Junior Achievement NEO and Waypoint’s artful healing project.

The Smart and Caring Community Grants program was established by the HCF board of directors and community-minded donors so that HCF could provide funding to our local charities and nonprofits.

Funds are awarded to programs and organizations who are registered charities or other qualified “donees” (as defined by Canada Revenue Agency).

Generous citizens and companies are the benefactors who fund the Huronia Community Foundation. Working with other members of Community Foundations of Canada, HCF then builds financial legacies through endowments, using them to make our local community a better place to live, work and play.
