Announcing Ontario Trillium Foundation Funding

Your MGA leadership team is pleased to announce that MGA is receiving a grant of $11,300 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund
to help our group rebuild and recover from impacts of COVID-19. With these funds and once pandemic restrictions are lifted, we will secure safe meeting spaces,
where we will live stream workshops and demonstrations with equipment purchased. We will also extend our social media outreach, so we can continue to
increase our membership. Next, our membership registration process will be automated to facilitate information processing and new member orientation. Finally,
we will begin conversations with local art groups to explore opportunities for collaboration.

 MGA extends our sincere thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for its support of our efforts.
