Given the current public health restrictions related to COVID-19 and based on member feedback in the 2020 survey, we have decided to revise our meeting schedule to accommodate outdoor social gatherings in warmer months if/when permitted.
Now that Ontario is in Stage 3 and the Province has approved new regulatory amendments for meetings and social gatherings, the Coordinating Committee feels comfortable proceeding with an in-person meeting while following all public health guidelines.
Social hour 6pm-7pm
Grant meeting 7pm-8pm
September 14, 2021 – Cobourg Yacht Club – 60 person capacity – ZOOM will be offered for a hybrid meeting model
October 19, 2021 – Location TBD
Collective impact grants are generated by the donations made by 100+ Women Northumberland members. 100% of these gifts are donated directly to a charity of choice as selected by the members. Based on membership, a grant can be $5,000 or greater!
The following charities will be up for vote at our next meeting. For more information about the charities, please click on the charity’s name to visit their website.
The Bridge Hospice
Covid visitor protocols and our expanding garden setting for residents, family & guests necessitate the purchase of durable, sanitize-able, sustainable, functional, attractive outdoor seating: 4 garden benches, 6 armchairs, 1 picnic table & 3 small tables from Taylors Recycled Plastic Products in Bailieboro totals $7,925 (pre-tax).
Our heritage village community activity centre, the Wesleyville church, was
badly damaged by arson in April. Previously restored by volunteers, the former
church once again requires extensive and expensive restoration. We request a
grant to help restore the eight beautiful stained-glass windows which were
cracked and damaged by the fire.
Sounds of the Next Generation (SONG)
SONG is a free music education program for Northumberland County kids – our program embraces children from all walks of life.
In order to welcome back returning and NEW students to in-class lessons, SONG requires funding to accommodate the need for increased instruction hours. Funding would therefore serve 3 purposes:
1) enable more children to participate in the SONG program — we really don’t want to have to turn any kids away
2) provide support to more families in the form of free afterschool programming in a safe and inclusive environment
3) supports local professional musicians – our instructors
