About Community Foundations

Community Foundations bring people together who care about their communities. We are local, independent, volunteer-driven, charitable organizations that aim to strengthen our communities by facilitating philanthropy, partnering with donors to build permanent endowments and other funds from which they support community organizations and projects, and providing leadership on issues of broad community concern.

There are more that 191 Community foundations across Canada, which hold a combined asset base of over $5.8 billion and grant over $290 million annually, making community foundations one of the largest granters nationally.

The Community Foundation movement is global. The number of Community Foundations has grown rapidly and there are now over 1800 Community Foundations worldwide. Although all Community Foundations in Canada and worldwide operate with a similar model, they are all separate, independent Foundations.
