Innisfil Community Foundation: Community Round Up

Community Round Up – March 11, 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

We’re excited to share that grant applications are now open!

This year, ICF is trying something new to get funds into charities quicker. Here’s what you need to know:

There is no application deadline. No more waiting for grant windows to open – simply apply when you need funding.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Our Board of Directors will review grant applications at their monthly meetings, to help get funds out the door faster.

The application is quick and easy. We designed it this way because we know you have more important work to do than filling out grant applications. We’ll follow up if we need more details.

Learn more and apply!
