Local issues can be easy to ignore.
Join us to make them #UNIGNORABLE.
Our Community Fund is built on the generosity of local donors and workplace partners. It is where we direct our community investments to make the biggest impact possible to change local lives. Whether it’s assisting those struggling to make ends meet and feel like a part of their community, funding youth-led projects or delivering critical services, our Community Fund has helped tens of thousands of people across Simcoe Muskoka.
With sixty years of experience in local collaboration and data collection, projects funded by the Community Fund have the biggest impact on those who need it most.
Last spring, UWSM held a series of consultations to identify what local stakeholders from several sectors saw as the most pressing poverty-related issues. These sessions also provided a chance to flag new and emerging issues in each of our six regions. This feedback builds on what we already know from our ongoing work across Simcoe Muskoka.
