The design is a concept of the Grand River, which flows through Brant County, the City of Brantford and the Six Nations. The Grand River expresses our foundation’s goal of becoming an integral part of this community, a passionate force that binds together our surrounding territory to support groups in need. The flowing design of the river illustrates our anticipation of growth and expansion, and the endless appearance of the body of water represents continuity and permanence.
