The Trust has received regular funding from the Bay Treasure Chest community fundraiser since the 50/50 lottery was established in 2014.

These regular contributions have allowed the Trust to move forward on several projects that would have otherwise remained on the wish list. From publishing the Walking Guide to the Old St. Margaret’s Bay Road to funding the Environmental Stewardship Grants Program introduced in 2017 and the building of the new Nine Mile River bridge, the Bay Treasure Chest funds have been put to direct use supporting the work of the Trust.

Annual Memberships and personal donations are other sources of key funding for the Trust.
