About the fund…
Created on June 11, 2007 by the Oakville Village Committee, the Oakville and District Community Endowment Fund (under the Community Foundation of Portage and District) is used to fund annual grants in Oakville and district. Only the interest is ever spent, never the principle, with at least 3.5% coming back into the community for sports, recreation, and special projects.
Applicants don’t have to be a registered charity to apply directly to the Endowment Fund but the funds must be disbursed through one. As a registered charity, the Oakville Community Club Inc. is capable of gathering these annual proceeds and allocating them to worthy community applicants, whether groups or individuals.
Used to fund:
- local activities and projects
- 2 – $1,000 bursaries
- for more info: Community Foundation of Portage and District
- disbursements decided by the 9 voting directors of the Oakville Community Club Inc
Donations are still sought as the higher the fund amount, the more money can be handed out to the community.
