Community Round Up

Community Round Up – April 30, 2021

This weekly round-up shares the latest from Innisfil Community Foundation (ICF), updates from our grantees, and news from across our community.

The latest from ICF

  • ICYMI, earlier this week we released an article about a potential Unclaimed Properties Initiative which could provide up to $10 million annually for communities in Ontario. With unprecedented need due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to think for new and innovative ways to find the funds that will help support our community.

Grantee Updates

  • Honour a woman who has impacted your life with a Mother’s Day e-card from RVH Foundation. E-cards are $5 each, in addition to your donation of choice, which will be matched up to $10,000 by community-minded donors, Randy and Bryn Styles. All proceeds will help RVH purchase new mammography imaging equipment.
  • Shine Through the Rain Foundation has partnered with Kits for a Cause to create customized care kits designed to support those who are affected by life threatening illness.

Community News

  • Finding Them Homes is hosting a virtual concert this Saturday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. Barrie’s own PJ Gowan from Cardinal Street is the opening act followed by Canadian rock legend Carl Dixon from The Guess Who, April Wine and Coney Hatch! It’s going to be an amazing night of music, dancing, singing, door prizes and much more with all proceeds going directly to the rescue! A perfect way to spend a Saturday night!
