How many philanthropic women does it take to change our community? Fifty!
That’s the idea behind an innovative new initiative at the Grand Bend Community Foundation.
The Foundation is seeking 50 women in the Grand Bend area to join an exclusive group. Each of the women will donate $1,000, creating an endowed (permanently invested) fund of $50,000, the 50 Grand Women Fund. Every year, the women will get together to determine how the income from the fund will be used to support organizations and charities in the region.
Says Past Chair Judy McDonald, “The 50 Grand Women Fund is a way to connect with other philanthropists, have an impact in our community, and have fun doing it!”
To date, more than 25 generous, community-minded women have joined the group.
Interested in joining? Simply contact Executive Director Pat Morden at 519-619-8630 or send a cheque for $1,000 to Grand Bend Community Foundation, P.O. Box 1150, Grand Bend, Ontario, N0M 1T0. You will receive an official tax receipt and will be invited to participate in ongoing activities. Next steps: a 50 Grand Women get-together in April 2019!
