PEMBROKE - The Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation (PPDCF) has launched its annual granting process. Eligible registered charitable applicants are invited to submit letters of intent by Feb. 28, with full applications due by Mar. 16, 2021.

Eligible organizations can apply for up to $10,000 through the General Grant. The PPDCF Grant is used to support needs in the community. The Bereavement Grant is used in connection with the community’s bereavement initiatives.

Organizations applying for funds must have a charitable number, or be a qualified donee as recognized through the Canada Revenue Agency. Application forms are now available on the website at: www.givingthatgrows.com

“Our annual grants tend to cover expenses that organizations can’t get covered by other grants. It’s amazing how impactful these grants can be for the benefit of many in our community,” explained Matt Bradley, Chair of the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation.

The grants are made possible through the investment of funds which earn interest throughout the year. The principle of these funds is not touched, so every year they can continue to generate grants for the community. Individuals who have endowment funds with the foundation also have the opportunity to direct their funds to assist with specific community causes.

Grant recipients from past years include First Step Options Centre, Petawawa Public Library, Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre, Eganville & District Senior Needs Association, and Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program Inc. (Bereavement Grant).
