This grant is done by myself and has nothing to do with The Township of Brock or The Township of Brock's policies governing grants.
Any non-profit organization in Ward 3 or serving Ward 3 may apply. The application is located on this page and once completed may be forwarded to me in various ways as indicated.
This is not "free money" and must be applied for in a fashion similar to other granting programs (public and private).
These grants are not the same as "sponsorships". If an organization wishes me to sponsor an event (like a golf tournament or other event) such a request can be done through a simple request and there would be no need for an application under this program. Depending on the level of sponsorship such amounts may be counted toward my annual contribution of half of my salary.
In the event there have been insufficient applications during a given year there is no guarantee that any amounts will carryforward to a future year.
Grants Awarded So Far:
Outer City Arts Inc. grant for $5,357.00.
Outer City Arts exists to provide access to resources and experiential learning opportunities for rural communities in all aspects of creative expression, locally, provincially nationally and internationally. Through partnerships and collaborations, exchanges and projects, Outer City Arts provides meaningful and relevant experiences for people of all ages. Outer City Arts is working to develop the upstairs of the Cannington Town Hall into a multi-use arts venue.
Cannington Canada Day Festival and Car Show: Grant of $2,000.00
The Cannington Lions Club holds this annual event to help the people of Brock come together and celebrate our nation's birthday. The event is not a fundraiser for The Club but rather a community service. As much of the event is free to all attendees as possible. Any event surpluses are either used to pay previous year deficits or are rolled into future year events.
