Rideau The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the Ministry of Culture. We receive $100 million annually from Ontario’s charity casino initiative. We fulfill our mission to build healthy and vibrant communities throughout Ontario by strengthening the capacity of the volunteer sector through investments in community-based initiatives. From April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006, the Foundation invested $94,968,100 in 1,444 grants to charitable and not-for-profit organizations across the province. Our granting demonstrates our commitment to the people of Ontario and our response to their diverse interests and needs. Beyond being a leading grantmaker, our Foundation’s staff and volunteers are well known as conveners and supporters of people and ideas. In the summer of 2005, we undertook a series of discussions with Ontarians on-line and at nine community meetings that we called Community Conversations. These meetings were a terrific opportunity for representatives from different organizations to come together, many for the first time, and share ideas and concerns. We listened and learned more about the diverse needs of communities and are using what we heard to inform and improve our grant-making practices. In November 2005, we held an OTF conference to share learnings with staff and volunteers. The conference opened with our Great Grants Awards celebration. We were delighted to recognize the achievements and amazing work of 19 outstanding organizations from across Ontario. Great grants just don’t happen, they are made with the support of a great team. At the Foundation, we are fortunate to have over 300 caring and steadfast Grant Review Team members and a solid Board of Directors that help make our work possible. Our unpaid volunteers bring their experiences and invaluable knowledge about Ontario’s communities to review applications and make recommendations for funding. They are supported by our Foundation staff, who are capable and talented professionals. We are proud to be one of Canada’s leading grantmaking foundations and to invest in the remarkable work of organizations in communities like yours that make this province truly great. 2 Our grants in Quinte, Kingston and Rideau Quinte, Kingston and Rideau Grant Review Team members April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006 It is our pleasure to report to you on the results of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Members of your local Grant Review Team (OTF) grants to communities in Quinte, are volunteers appointed by the Government Kingston and Rideau.

In particular, the Foundation will place priority on supporting organizations that work in the following areas to help Ontarians achieve their potential. Enhanced success for students and learners A healthy and vibrant community depends on the skills and knowledge of its members. Whether knowledge and skills are developed in the early years when children start school or much later in life, it is key that people of all ages and abilities are ready to learn. This is why the Ontario Trillium Foundation will place priority on initiatives that: • Provide community-based learning opportunities and create conditions for achievement for people of all ages and abilities • Help prepare children and youth for success This includes, but is not limited to, broadening learning experiences for children and youth; helping children and youth remain and achieve in school; preparing young children to learn; providing opportunities for children and youth to experience positive personal growth; and improving adult literacy through resources and activities. Healthier and more physically active Ontarians Encouraging Ontarians to lead healthier lifestyles, as well as improving other determinants of health, such as air and water quality, and providing opportunities for people to enhance their health and well-being will lead to healthier and more physically active Ontarians. To this end, the Ontario Trillium Foundation will place priority on initiatives that: • Promote physical activity for people of all ages and abilities • Promote recreational activities for people of all ages and abilities • Enhance and help protect human and ecosystem health • Create conditions for people to reach their full health and well-being potential • Promote cultural and artistic activities for people of all ages and abilities This includes, but is not limited to, promoting and increasing physical activity; increasing or sustaining recreational and leisure opportunities; helping communities take responsibility to protect the natural environment; supporting systems that sustain health and well-being; sustaining a healthy arts community; and celebrating and preserving heritage. Enhanced employment and economic potential for workers and their families The Ontario Trillium Foundation supports initiatives that are innovative and that stimulate economic growth. To this end, OTF will place priority on proposals that support organizations to build skills, create jobs and enhance economic potential for individuals and communities through initiatives that: 7 Our granting priorities (Continued) • Provide skill development or employment opportunities • Sustain and promote a greener economy and community • Strengthen the economic health of a community • Help further a community’s long-term vision and growth This includes, but is not limited to, increasing opportunities for employment for those experiencing barriers including Aboriginal people, newcomers, people with disabilities and at-risk youth; strengthening organizations and supporting initiatives that promote a sustainable environment; sustaining the economic viability of the community; and encouraging community-planning processes. More effective volunteers and more people engaged in their communities Volunteers are the foundation of healthy and caring communities that are safe, clean, secure and vibrant. Providing people with opportunities to actively participate in activities or programs offered within their community also contributes to this. We support initiatives that: • Create conditions to increase community engagement of people of all ages, abilities and cultures • Strengthen volunteerism among people of all ages, abilities and cultures • Strengthen the voluntary sector This includes, but is not limited to, building community connections and awareness; promoting and increasing volunteerism, particularly among young people; enhancing the capacity of the volunteer sector and fostering strategic thinking and innovation; and building the capacity of charitable and not-for-profit organizations. 8 GRANTS From April 1 2005 to March 31 2006 Quinte, Kingston and Rideau Quinte, Kingston and Rideau Grants by budget fund Grants by priority Success for Learners Project 19% Healthier 35% Ontarians Other Community 53% Priorities Capital 1% 51% Volunteer Engagement 18% Operating Economic 14% Potential 9% Quinte, Kingston and Rideau Community and Province-Wide Grants by sector Grants by sector Arts & Arts & Sports & Sports & Culture Culture Recreation Recreation 24% 22% 33% 23% Human & Environment Social 8% Human & Services Environment Social 45% 6% Services 39% 9 Ontario Trillium Foundation community grants Making a difference in Quinte, Kingston and Rideau for 2005-2006 In 2005-2006 the Ontario Trillium Foundation awarded 99 grants in Quinte, Kingston and Rideau valued at $3,697,811.
