Eligible agencies can apply for up to $1,000

The Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation (PPDCF) has launched their regular granting process.

Eligible registered charitable applicants are invited to submit letters of intent by Feb. 28, with full applications due by March 15.

“Our annual grants tend to cover expenses that organizations can’t get covered by other grants, therefore, it is exciting to see how a little can go a long way,” explains Matt Bradley, chairman of the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation. “It’s amazing how impactful these grants can be for the benefit of many in our community.”

Eligible organizations can apply for up to $1,000 through the General Grant or the Bereavement Grant. The Foundation Grant is used to support needs in the community. The Bereavement Grant is used in connection with bereavement initiatives.

Organizations applying for funds must have a charitable number, or be a qualified donee as recognized through the Canada Revenue Agency. Application forms are now available on the website at: www.givingthatgrows.com The grants are made possible through the investment of funds which earn interest throughout the year. The principle of these funds is not touched, so that every year they can continue to generate grants for the community. Individuals who have endowment funds with the Foundation also have the opportunity to direct their funds to assist with community causes.

Last year our grant recipients were First Step Options Centre, Petawawa Public Library, and the Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre. There was also a special presentation given to The Grind and Colby’s Crusade.

The Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation is a public foundation which benefits the community by providing funds to charities, local groups and organizations that are also registered under the Income Tax Act. It is one of more than 191 Community Foundations in Canada. The Foundation was established in 2008 and has a mandate to invest and manage charitable funds for projects, causes and other community organizations. Proceeds are distributed to meet the community’s greatest needs.
