Today we are pleased to announce the 2021/2022 donation of $750 to the Encore Seniors Education Centre. Encore Education Centre is a non-profit organization based in Cornwall, Ontario offering educational courses and information sessions designed primarily for adults 50+. There are no tests or grades in these non-credit courses and workshops.

The Kinsmen Club wishes to thank all our community supporters that make these donations possible. TV Bingo players & merchants, participants at some of our events (Kinsmen Farmers Market, Pizza Party) and our other fundraising events.

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.

Over the last year, a strategic planning process was undertaken internally to determine the levels of funding that would be allocated to each of these broad categories. Today’s donation falls under the relief of poverty thrust of our strategy.

All community applications received were reviewed by members of the Cornwall Kinsmen Club and a budget for the year was established.

Groups may still submit requests during the year for consideration – application form is available on our web site
