Creating caring communities where everyone thrives
Making it easy for people to do more good
The Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) enables people, companies and organizations to do more good. We connect people who care to causes that matter. We do this by making it easy for fundholders to give and for charities to receive money.
When you make a donation to the KWCF we invest that gift into a permanent endowment fund which generates income that is then distributed through grants to support a wide range of charitable causes within our community. We accept a wide variety of gifts and provide donors with a number of charitable options. You can contribute cash, stocks, property and other assets. You may establish a fund in your name, or in the name of a loved one. In most cases your gift qualifies for a maximum tax advantage under federal law.
As a leading community-building organization in Waterloo Region, we are focused on collaborating with partners to identify and meet current and future needs of our community, by enabling social capital and developing creative forward-thinking innovative solutions for place-based philanthropy.
