About Our Charity
The Community Foundation for Kingston & Area encourages charitable giving by people who want to leave a lasting legacy to their community. The Foundation is a collection of individual funds established by local citizens and held in perpetuity, to enhance the quality of life in our community. It is a public charity, registered with Canada Revenue Agency, that allows individuals, families, businesses, private foundations and non-profit organizations, through gifts and bequests, to establish permanent endowments under the umbrella of one large foundation. The income from these separate funds can help the community respond to today's problems and meet the emerging needs and opportunities of the future.
