In November 2012, we joined community foundations coast to coast in responding to Governor General David Johnston’s challenge to come together and build a smarter, more caring nation that holds promise for all by creating the Smart & Caring Muskoka Fund. This community fund ensures that there are dedicated resources to us respond to local priorities. Any Muskoka resident, cottager or business can donate any amount to the Smart & Caring Muskoka Fund at any time. Every August our Board sets the Fund’s granting priority. Grants are awarded each November to celebrate National Philanthropy Week. Click here to check for funding opportunities from the Smart & Caring Muskoka Fund.
