Did you attend one of these events this year?
- Gender Diversity Inclusion workshop
- Cortes Island Skate Jam
- Parents and Tots Classes
- Adventures in Leadership end of year kayak trip
- Songwriters of Cortes circle
- Citizen Journalism workshop
- Savoury Asian Cooking class (happening this Sunday, December 3rd!)

All of these projects were made possible by our MicroGrants for Neighbours program. This year our little island MicroGrants program gave away over $6,000. This was our first year as part of a network of Community Foundations across the province running similar programs called Neighbourhood Small Grants. These innovative programs give small amounts of money directly to neighbours with great ideas so they can share their interests directly with their community. More impact, less bureaucracy.
