On April 26 2016, Oxford Community Foundation hosted our 13th Annual General Meeting at the Fusion Youth Activity & Technology Centre in Ingersoll, Ontario. Thank you Fusion, for allowing us to use your space for our gathering!
With 39 individuals in attendance, we shared an overview of our 2015 year, honoured our donors, and recognized several members of the board who were completing their terms as of the AGM: Bill Semeniuk, Mary Anne Silverthorn, Jim Pickard, Rosemary George, and Tanya Murray.
We were also pleased to hear from representatives for many of the 2015 grant recipients, as they shared with us how the grant money that they received impacted their organizations. These presentations remind us why we do what we do.
It was truly heartwarming to gather together to witness the impact that we can have on our community. From bedspreads to wetlands, fridges to building supplies – each dollar that was granted in the community had such a positive impact on so many individuals.

OCF would like to thank everyone for attending, and for sharing your stories with us. We are lucky to be involved with such passionate people advocating for our community.
