We understand our communities
Sweeping changes to the economy, the environment and demographics are just some of the trends affecting our country and our communities. We actively participate in the life of the community, continually engage in consultation and discussion, track and report on local and national trends and respond to change.

Community Foundation Grey Bruce provides leadership in identifying community issues and convening discussion.
Community Foundation Grey Bruce strives for flexible, transparent governance and leadership practices that welcome volunteer involvement, encourages dialogue among diverse voices in the community and inspires commitment to philanthropy.
The Community Foundations Grey Bruce‚Äôs purpose is to help people realize their philanthropy wishes and enable them to become involved in building their community through endowments.
Endowments allow us to fund a multitude of worthy causes. Through community foundation endowments are pooled together so a bigger amount can be invested so that a maximum return can be created. The investments are managed by professionals and only the earned income is used, the initial principal is not.
Because the initial principal is not touched we can continue giving money through grants where it is most needed. Currently the Community Foundation Grey Bruce manages $13 million in assets.
