Since 1933, the Cornwall Kinsmen Club has raised funds through a range of activities and invested these funds in order to meet the Community’s Greatest Needs. These needs change from year to year and thus we adjust the flow of funds accordingly. To assist us in our strategic process we have identified 7 broad categories:

·         Relief of Poverty;

·         Advancement of Education;

·         Culture and the Arts;

·         Health and Welfare;

·         Enhancement of Youth;

·         Enhancement of Public Security and;

·         Community Service.

Each year, a strategic planning process is undertaken to determine the levels of funding that would be allocated to each of these broad categories. All community applications received are reviewed by members of the Cornwall Kinsmen Club and charitable donations are determined. Groups may still submit requests during the year for consideration – application form is available on our web site.

Today’s donation falls under the enhancement of youth thrust of our strategy. Generally, this includes organizations that demonstrate that: their primary purpose is to provide services and programs for young people; programs and services are for youth; and their programs have no access restrictions other than the age requirement.
