About Niagara Community Foundation
The Niagara Community Foundation links donors' legacies to their community forever through the creation of endowment funds that are held in perpetuity. A portion of the earnings are granted each year to charities working in a variety of sectors, including the arts, education, culture, heritage, environment, health and the social services. The charities supported each year are determined in two ways: either through donor direction at the time the fund was created or through a variety of granting programs.
Donors can designate a particular charity or a field of interest to support with their fund. They can also meet with the foundation annually to advise us as to which particular charities or causes they would like to support.
Memorial gifts and gifts in honour of an individual can also be made to the foundation and to a particular fund at the foundation. A complete listing of the funds is available below.
