“STATO is extremely grateful for the support of the Frog’s Breath foundation. The goal of our project is to link our community in a safe manner. Thanks to Frog’s Breath Foundation’s very generous contribution, we will be able to pave another section in the next phase of the STATO trail construction. Thank you for supporting our dream to reality project.”

Tri-Town Ski Village
“The Frog’s Breath Foundation has been a long time partner and supporter. Their belief in our group and our mission has enabled us to realize projects and maintain infrastructure that might have been impossible otherwise. The money donated not only improves the Hill but enriches the experience of the community members who use it.
This year we will be able to repair and renovate parts of our facility, purchase or replace necessary equipment and alter some of our runs – which will allow for a longer season and smoother operation.
Such generosity is inspiring.”

Pike Lake Municipal Park
“The Hudson Twp Recreation Committee has been the recipient of Frog’s Breath grants. Because of their generous donations, the committee has been able to install a new playground and are continuing with upgrades at the Pike Lake Municipal Park for the residents of the township and surrounding area to enjoy. We are eternally grateful to the foundation for helping us reach our main goal of installing the playground. Without the Foundation, it would have taken our small committee years to fundraise in order to be where we are today. The committee is now able to focus on organizing activities and events to help get residents, especially children, active.”

“We can’t thank the Frog’s Breath Foundation enough for their support of our Hope Box Program.Hope Boxes are a free resource for families experiencing grief through pregnancy, infant and child loss. Since receiving the Frog’s Breath grant we have been able to increase awareness of the needed support and as such have assisted three other locations in Ontario and one in Nova Scotia to begin their own Hope Box programs. The support we received from Frog’s Breath has allowed us to initiate conversations with the medical community about positive changes they could make, including the introduction of a full-day sensitivity training for medical and social services staff held in September 2014 in New Liskeard. Providing grief support to families on an ongoing basis through partnerships with local medical and social services agencies is not an easy task, it can be draining and exhausting, yet the support we received from Frog’s Breath was a needed encouragement that we were doing something right in our community and that others supported our initiative to continue this resource. The legacy of our Frog’s Breath grant will go on indefinitely as we know lives have been positively changed and families encouraged during a very dark time – given hope when hope seems lost. And on behalf of those families we thank you!”
