At the Thunder Bay Community Foundation we understand that the needs of our community are always changing. That's why, for over 40 years, we've distributed $2.5 million in grants and scholarships in support of a wide variety of charitable organizations, programs and projects. Community Foundation grants are made possible through the generous endowments and gifts of local citizens. Each year, usually in early September, the Foundation issues a request for proposals from qualified charitable organizations in the District of Thunder Bay. We do not accept proposals from individuals or organizations outside of our geographic region.
