The Next 25 Years

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, Community Foundation Grey Bruce is establishing the Next25 Fund that will help us ensure the vitality of all communities in Grey and Bruce for another quarter century.

While acknowledging our history, we look forward to the future. Our goal for the Next25 Fund is to raise $1,000,000 through donations and gifts in our anniversary year. You can be part of the Next25 Fund with your donation. If 4,000 people give $250, we will reach our goal. Every gift counts. The funds will be endowed—invested forever—generating income for decades to come.

To kickstart this effort, present and former members of the Board of Directors, along with a few key fundholders have already contributed more than $28,000 to get the ball rolling. Thank you to these visionaries who understand the importance of community and want to provide for continuing health and prosperity in our region.

The Next25 Fund will provide future grants to charities and non profits with projects that address priorities that are identified in our Vital Signs® report. The Next25 Fund will give the Foundation the latitude to grant strategically based on local knowledge for local impact. We can do great things together. We want to empower all ages with opportunities in diverse education pathways and lifelong learning. We want to support a healthy, natural environment and the unique habitats along our shorelines and escarpment. We don’t want to leave anyone behind, ensuring health, wellness and a good living standard for all people. We need to support community connections through capital investment in the places we come together, making sure they are accessible to everyone. Supporting strong arts and culture will ensure that the stories of all peoples of this region are celebrated and preserved.

An eye to the future sees our demographics shifting and intergenerational change in the decades ahead. We need to ensure services are available to welcome newcomers and to aid their success in Grey Bruce. We want to support young people and entrepreneurs that are moving into area to start businesses and raise a family. We want to address Reconciliation and build strong relations and enduring partnerships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

Help Community Foundation Grey Bruce to support a vision for the future of our community with your donation.  The Next25 looks bright and promising. We’re here for good.

Thank you to those that have supported our vision for the future of our community, by donating to the Next25 Fund!
