At the Tuesday April 9, Brockville City Council meeting, Mayor Matt Wren opened the meeting with a reminder for the community to submit their applications for the Brockville Legacy Fund.

“Each year, the city disperses funds to various projects and initiatives via the City of Brockville’s Legacy Fund,” Mayor Wren explained. “We have a committee that consists of two members of council and the two most recent Citizen of the Year recipients, who would determine the granting of funds to various initiatives and causes in the community.” 

The Legacy Fund was founded in 2009 under the management of the Brockville and Area Community Foundation. According to the City of Brockville website, last year’s funds were allocated as follows:

  • The Lost & Found Society Canada Inc.: $1,000
  • Brockville Bunnies: $2,100
  • Brockville Soccer: $3,500
  • Brock Trail: $1,200
  • Brockville Public Library: $1,000

Wren stated in the meeting that this year’s Legacy Fund consists of approximately $8,000. The appointed committee will determine how and to whom this fund will be distributed once all applications are submitted. 

Wren reminded council staff and community viewers that the application deadline of Friday, April 19 at 4 p.m. is fast approaching. 

“Those who may be interested in applying can do so online by visiting brockville.com/legacy-fund. You’ll get all the information that you need from that,” concluded Wren.
