Yorkton & District Community Foundation (YDCF) accepted grant applications from groups in Yorkton and surrounding communities until December 31, 2022.
This is the third year YDCF is distributing grants from donations it has received. Previous grants supported arts and culture, mental health counselling, food security, education, child care safety courses, recreation activities and youth programming. Applications are not limited to these program areas.
“The wishes of donors determine the types of activities and the communities to be supported by the grants programs,” Ray Bailey, President of the YDCF Board of Directors said.
Registered charities and non-profits aligned with a registered charity were eligible to apply. Organizations in Yorkton, Melville and Kamsack have received past grants, with the resulting outreach extending far beyond these communities. This year $6,500 is available to grant out, an increase of 8.3 percent over last year.
YDCF currently administers three named funds. The Krepakevich Fund for Families was established by Gene and Gladys Krepakevich to help families in need in Yorkton & surrounding area. This fund is a lasting legacy bearing the family name each year.
The Mental Health Fund was initiated with donations by a former fundraising group. The General Community Fund supports applications that assist and improve communities in a multitude of ways. Donors can add to any of these funds or create their own.
“There are many generous people who want to help others and who want to preserve and enhance their community. The Yorkton & District Community Foundation is pleased to provide the structure to help,” Bailey added.
