The process of allocating funds to agencies has undergone a transition in CKL that we feel is much more transparent and accountable. A Citizen Review Panel is created from a pool of board members and volunteers from across the city. These volunteers are committed to making positive and impactful changes in their communities. Every agency that applies must demonstrate a clearly stated purpose and function and provide verification that they are engaged in the planning, delivery and evaluation of such services.
The process offers opportunity for our volunteers to learn more about each agency’s impact through the following process:
2017 Telecare Mona Hall Legacy
The United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes is issuing a request for Letters of Intent to express interest in applying for funding available through a special opportunity provided by Lifeline Telecare Lindsay, the Mona Hall Legacy Fund. For 40 years Telecare provided an invaluable distress line for the community. Reassurance calls were made to people living alone, isolated, or having difficulty coping with day-to-day activities. In memory of an amazing woman, Mona Hall, a $5,000 fund to be awarded annually for the next 4 yours, has been set up for organizations wishing to create opportunities for a better life for individuals, families, and communities by making our community a better place to live for everyone.
The Mona Hall Legacy Fund honours a strong independent woman who was involved in her community. She was a grocer by profession, but also found time to volunteer with her church, she helped organize a Lindsay Home Coming, was a member of the I.O.D.E., and an extraordinary collector of antiques. In later years she requested to become a client of the reassurance call program at Telecare.
The Telecare Mona Hall Legacy will award $5,000 to a non-profit organization/group whose project/program addresses an emerging or changing need in the CKL community.
The first step in this process is the completion of a Letter of Intent to express interest in applying for funding available through the United Way CKL. Potential applicants will then be selected and asked to submit a full funding application which will include Project Information, Community Need, Action Plan, Financial Requirements, Method of Outcome Measurement, and Evaluation Criteria.
