Create Your Own Fund
Start a fund that reflects your values and your goals. Support it all or pinpoint your focus. Take a backseat or the driver's seat. It's your fund. For Good. Forever.

What is an Endowment Fund?
Establishing an endowment fund is like opening an investment account for our community. Contributions are permanently invested and a portion of the income is distributed to local registered charities determined by our Spending Policy and Fee Policy.
What matters most to you?
Address our community’s immediate and future needs. Funds respond to grant applications received through the Foundation’s Community Grants program.
Field of Interest
Make a lasting impact on a specific community need or interest area that is important to you.
Provide stable and lasting support to the charitable organization(s) of your choice.
Support projects or programs you find meaningful. You take on an active role in the decision making process year upon year.
Help generations of local students pursue their educational dreams for the future.
Help a registered charitable organization establish a source of stable and lasting revenue.
