This is the first grant awarded from the Coco Bear Fund at the Muskoka Community Foundation.

Lynn DeCaro, Executive Director of the Muskoka Community Foundation, says “This level of funding would not be possible without the generous support of donors and individuals who have purchased Coco Bear Fundraiser merchandise.”
