Donations for the LeRoi Community Foundation are held in a permanent fund. Income generated from that investment is distributed as grants to registered Canadian charitable organizations whose projects meet the Foundation’s goal. The LeRoi Community Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the betterment of the Greater Trail area through an extensive network of donors and co-operations.
