Why did we create an Awards Hub?

As community builders, we’ve been working with Philanthropists in Oakville for 25 years now. Over that time we’ve helped generous residents distribute numerous grants and scholarships to make an impact on lives right here in Oakville.

With the introduction of the Alex and Bernice DeMaio Education Award, here at the Foundation we saw an opportunity to take community connection one step further. By creating an online Awards Hub for Oakville-area students, we’ve simplified the process for students and transitioned countless paper applications into the digital world.
