BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Late Pat Smith, Honorary Chair
Pat was a visionary and mentor to many, who, along with several like-minded individuals, spearheaded the creation of the Oxford Community Foundation and became the first Chair of the foundation in 2004. Her spirit and tenacity lives on with the foundation, and each grant made honours her legacy in Oxford County.
Pat’s husband, Barry Smith, fondly recalls Pat’s amazement when an individual drove all the way from Toronto to accept a grant for $75 in the early days of the foundation. Since then, OCF has grown to grant tens of thousands of dollars annually, and Barry is sure that Pat would be thrilled with the positive impact that OCF has had on the community.
