Milton Community Fund Grant Program

Rotary Club Volunteers at a community event

The Milton Community Fund supports not-for-profit organizations whose initiatives add to the quality of life within our community or enhance the image of Milton. Priority is given to organizations that provide recreation, artistic and cultural programs and services for the benefit of the community.

This program was established by Town of Milton Council in 2001 to distribute a portion of the funds received from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) Mohawk location for the benefit of the community.

The Milton Community Fund has distributed more than $6,445,100 to a wide range of not-for-profit community organizations and individuals since it was established.
