Are merchandisers bombarding your inbox with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales?  Giving Tuesday helps to put the pre-Christmas shopping season in perspective. On Giving Tuesday, charities across the country celebrate the spirit of giving – whether that means donating to a cause or volunteering with an organization.

At LCF, we want to say a big thank you to our fund holders.  These are the generous individuals and corporations who have established endowed funds so that we can give back to you.

We want to thank everyone who has made a donation of any amount to LCF.  Your donations support our granting program.

We want to thank the volunteers of local organizations.  Your donation of time, energy and ideas make the communities of Greater Trail a special place to live, work and play.

On Tuesday, November 28, please remember to give in some way.

Get up to $750K in funding from Google.org

The Google.org Impact Challenge will grant $5 million to Canadian nonprofit organizations that are using technology to tackle the world’s biggest social challenges.

Five winners will each receive $750K in grant funding, and five additional finalists will receive a $250K grant. All ten organizations will also receive mentorship from Google and LEAP to help bring their idea to life.

The grant opportunity is open to all registered nonprofits and charities in Canada, and does not need to be a new idea. In fact, organizations can apply with a project that is already a work in progress. Apply before November 26, 2016 at g.co/canadachallenge.
