The Community Foundations of Canada has just released information on its new community fund to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. This fund is intended to bring Canadians together to build community and activate a groundswell of local initiatives, activities, and events leading up to and during Canada’s sesquicentennial.
The fund will be distributed through small grants and community foundations across Canada through "locally-led projects that build community, inspire a deeper understanding of Canada, and encourage participation in a wide range of initiatives that mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation".
For more information visit Community Foundations of Canada or call our office.
Dauphin and District Community Foundation is proud to be a part of the Parkland Crossing's new playground structure by providing grants to help cover the costs of new flooring, as well as money towards the new playground equipment. We know this is a great place for the children of our community and are a proud sponsor of this project.
The Dauphin Snowmobile Club requested a grant this last year to help pay for materials to build a warm-up shelter.
We are glad to see the new shelter built and operational this year 5 miles west of Dauphin, and glad to be apart of this great project.
Make sure to stop in there and warm up this year, or leave your mark in your community by donating today.
