Grants 2008
Until 2008, GBCF had consistently granted more than is required of foundations by the Canada Revenue Agency. When the global financial meltdown caused a dramatic drop in our portfolio, we made the difficult decision to forego granting and protect the long-term value of our endowment funds.
