Through a generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Stratford Perth Community Foundation has committed to a three year plan to create regional Smart & Caring Community Funds throughout Perth County. You will see the Community Foundation become more involved in every area of Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County by engaging each region to build their own Community Fund to sustain a vibrant non-profit sector in their own community. This plan truly embodies the "give where you live" philosophy.
Starting in 2015, our Smart & Caring Communities rollout will begin with North Perth and Stratford. The donations raised in each community with stay in that community. That means, once created, each area fund will benefit the community that built it, now and forever.
