The FIG Fund, which was founded by Adele Poynter and her daughter Kate McNicholas, provides an annual grant to give Newfoundland and Labrador women in need support to overcome obstacles and improve their quality of life.
We will be announcing this year's FIG Fund grant recipient at the Fête. The fund's impact will double this year through a partnership with Community Foundations of Canada and the federal government.
General admission $100, with a $90 charitable tax receipt. Student/Youth admission $50, with a $40 charitable tax receipt.
THE FIG FUNDprovides financial and non-financial support and commitment to women who are trying to improve their lives.
THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONpromotes and sustains healthy communities across our province by providing grant funding to a wide range of community organizations.
The Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (CFNL) is a vehicle that helps individuals, businesses, and charities to establish endowment funds that become permanent community resources. The income from these funds is used to provide annual grants to support community programs across the province in fields like education, arts and culture, health and wellness, environment, and community capacity.
We combine our broad, province-wide reach with a grassroots focus on small organizations that can have a major impact in their local communities. Our goal is to address community problems and to enrich the lives of community members.
