NIGGV operates under a volunteer Board of twelve Directors and receives funding from various government ministries, but it cannot solely depend on these sources. Thus, the NIGG Foundation was formed in 2000 to aid with fundraising efforts at the Village. As a not-for-profit organization and registered charity, the Foundation funds projects that enhance the quality of life for seniors of Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village by providing them with an exceptional place to live and call “home”.
