The Great Lakes Trust endowment, managed by the Hamilton Community Foundation, currently stands at just over $25,000, built entirely from grassroots efforts by fellow artists, academics, and adventurers like you!

Each year we provide funding for groups like Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and the Bay Area Restoration Council to fight for clean, safe, swimmable, drinkable, fishable water, for now and posterity.

A larger endowment means more awards to more worthy recipients, and larger grants for those projects. Please consider helping us find and support innovative and worthy projects to restore and sustain the Great Lakes.

Your donation to our endowment is tax deductible.
