We are pleased to announce that the Bancroft Curling Club’s application for the Community Building Fund grant application has been approved! The $50,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation is intended to help organizations like ours maintain our financial viability in the short term.
There are some obligations to the club when accepting these funds. The most important obligation for our club is the requirement to open for the 2021-2022 curling season. This grant can be applied to eligible on-going operating expenses, eligible COVID related expenses and new A/V equipment, laptops and software. This truly is good news for our little club.
We would like to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for recognizing and supporting the role that the Bancroft Curling Club plays in our community. This grant, along with the support of our members, business partners and volunteers, will ensure the survival of the curling club.
