About Our Charity
The Foundation has been established in order to provide a vehicle which will:
~ assist donors in making community focused philanthropic decisions;
~ receive and invest endowments in a permanent, professionally managed trust;
~ utiilize the funds earnings to support a broad range of community enrichment activities;
~ be governed by a community appointed, local Board of Directors who serve as volunteers for a three year term;
~ minimize administrative expenses;
~ provide a long-term, permanent focus for benevolent work throughout our community ensuring a co-ordinated, integrated approach with other charitable organizations;
~ provide grants in response to our community's greatest needs while maintaining and expanding the endowment fund for future generations;
~ continue to work in close co-operation with similar foundations across Canada through our membership in the national organization, "Community Foundations of Canada".
