Small Grant Recipients

Posted by on

The Victoria Commandery of the Sovereign Order of St John is pleased to announce the recipients of our 2020 Small Grants Program.  There was sadness and joy in reviewing the 31 qualified and excellent applications requesting almost $150,000 to help the most vulnerable.  Sadness in recognizing the extraordinary need in the community and that we had to make difficult decisions.  Joy in the recognition that we have a large interactive community that is working together to solve community problems.  Many agencies are interlinked and interconnected and doing amazing work and we are humbled to play a part.
