Thank you to the many supporters who, from day one to now, have been ready to step up to support our fledging network and help us grow.
The purpose of the Lanark County Community Grants Program is to responsibly distribute County funds to support non-profit agencies and organizations who serve Lanark County. Grants are awarded to local projects that have a direct impact on the people of our community or an indirect impact by increasing the capacity of organizations to initiate and sustain local projects.

Founded in 2002, the Perth & District Community Foundation (PDCF) has been connecting donors to causes that matter.
