The purpose of this Committee is to review and approve requests for funding through the Inspiring Innisfil Grant Fund in accordance with the Innisfil Community Grant Application Guidelines.  Meetings will coincide with bi-annual grant intakes and additionally, as required.  Off-site meetings may also be required to attend events and organizations which have received funding.  





The Town of Innisfil is looking for interested residents to be part of the Innisfil Community Grant Review Committee.  This is an independent committee of Council whose mandate will be to review, evaluate and make recommendations related to eligible applications for the new Inspiring Innisfil Fund.


The Committee will be comprised of five members, preferably citizens from within the geographic area of Innisfil. These positions are volunteer positions only, and therefore committee members will not receive any remuneration.  It is anticipated that meetings will take place on a semi-annual basis.  All meetings will take place at Innisfil Town Hall. Committee members may also be required to attend media functions and grant recipient sit visits from time to time, as scheduled in advance.


The Inspiring Innisfil Fund is one of three new municipal grant programs being offered by the Town as part of Inspiring Innisfil 2020 initiatives.  A portion of the funding for these grant programs will come from the Spirit of the Community events, (Mayor’s Golf Tournament and Dinnner & Auction) and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s Municipal Contribution Agreement.
