Community Foundations Of Canada
Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) is the national leadership organization for Canada’s 191 local community foundations.
Together with community foundations across the country, they help drive local solutions for national change on the issues that
matter most to Canadians.
Objectives of Foundations Of Canada
There are many foundations that are allowed by the government of Canada to provide grants. One of them is Community Foundations of Canada.
Their programming targets pressing social issues in Canada, including youth engagement, gender equality, support for entrepreneurship and social innovation, and community-level connections with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) among many other topics. In addition to their thematic programming, they also host a bi-annual national conference for community and private foundations, run the country’s largest community-driven data program, and host The Learning Institute, a resource center for local foundations which provides programming guides, webinars, and events.
Together with community foundations across the country, we help drive local solutions for national change on the issues that matter most to Canadians. We’re building a movement that connects community foundations, Canadians and partners to create a just, sustainable future.
“Relentlessly pursuing a future where everyone belongs.” We believe in a future that is bright, a future that is just and sustainable, and a future that is not the status quo. A future where, no matter a person’s background, they feel a sense of belonging in Canada. We’re building a movement that connects community foundations, partners, and Canadians to make this future a reality.
