WHAT WE DO
We are one of Canada’s 191 community foundations under the umbrella of the Community Foundations of Canada.
Community foundations contribute time, leadership and financial support to local initiatives, helping people give back where their communities need it most. With an intimate knowledge of local priorities, community foundations champion what matters most by directing grants, expertise, leadership, and other investments towards everything from shelter, education, and care for those in need, to the arts, environment and recreation.
Philanthropy takes time to do it right. The volunteers on the Foundation spend countless hours working with donors and the community to find the right fit. This takes patience, and understanding of our community as a whole.
Our volunteers are directly engaged with donors, non-profit organizations, grantees and government agencies. We are a diverse group, with insight into many social aspects of the North Coast and offer a broader perspective than many other support organizations. We take the long view on community well being, and are well positioned to address issues and take risks.
We manage forever funds. What does this mean? It means we have a pool of money that we continually grow with donations from philanthopists, like you. That money grows very safe interest pooled with other Community Foundations (to minimize risk, and maximize returns). Those returns are what we put back into the community, never touching the base pool assets. The more we can grow that pool, the more we can give away annually to the Community!
