Libraries, Art Space Centre benefit from Trillium grants

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is making this province a better place to live, work and play by investing in 26 not-for-profit and charitable organizations in Durham, Haliburton, Kawartha and Pine Ridge.

Through the investments non-for-profit groups in towns, counties and cities across Ontario will have the support they need to make an impact.

Each unique community in Ontario contributes to a dynamic and united province, and with OTF investments these organizations are strengthening local economies and providing services that matter.

In addition to 381 community grants, OTF has announced 24 grants that will support larger, province-wide projects. By working with not-for-profit organizations at the local level, and other groups that operate on a larger scale, OTF is maximizing the impact of our investments and helping to build a healthy and vibrant Ontario.

Grants in this area include:

• Ennismore Heritage and Art Space Centre – $60,000 over one year to revitalize and expand community use of a heritage building in the hamlet of Ennismore by renovating the basement to provide additional programming space, and by drilling a well to ensure access to safe water.

• Township of Selwyn – $10,500 over one year to install computer equipment and software at the library’s three branches, which will enhance access to library services for persons with low vision and hearing loss.

• Township of Douro-Dummer – $14,600 over one year to increase accessibility to the library and its resources by installing automatic doors and upgrading public computers and related accessible technology.
