County of Brant receiving donations for new Wilkin Family Community Centre

County of BrantCounty of Brant receiving donations for new Wilkin Family Community Centre

County of Brant has continued to receive significant donations in support of the new Wilkin Family Community Centre.

Since March 2024, the campaign working group has been seeking individuals and businesses who are looking to make a significant donation to the Wilkin Family Community Centre.

“We are so pleased to announce that donations are coming in,” said David Bailey, Mayor for the County of Brant. “Pelton Bros. Transport Ltd. has pledged $40,000, and an anonymous donor has contributed $30,000. These are incredibly generous donations and take us that much closer to our fundraising goal.”

The Wilkin Family Community Centre will consist of approximately 2,055 square feet of total indoor space, and will offer space for indoor and outdoor recreation, social activities, family gatherings, cultural and arts activities and a host of other opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy. The Wilkin Family Community Centre will be the first net zero building structure for Brant and will also be home to the Paris Lawn Bowling Club and the Paris Seniors Club 99.

The cost to build the Wilkin Family Community Centre is $1.6 million dollars, with a fundraising goal of $400,000, which will help lower the cost of the project to the municipality. Construction is expected to be completed before the end of 2024.

Naming opportunities are available for gifts at the $10,000 and above level and all donors who wish to be named will be recognized on the Donor Wall in the Great Room of the Wilkin Family Community Centre.

For more information on remaining naming opportunities and how you can donate, please contact the Capital Campaign Coordinator, Angee Turnbull, CFRE at 519.761.1129 or angee.turnbull@brant.ca
