BUILDING TODAY FOR TOMORROW

Local community leaders are establishing a Community Foundation for the City of Kawartha Lakes for Canada's 150th...and the next 150 years!

Focused VISION

A prosperous, innovative, caring and progressive Kawartha Lakes enriching the lives of all.

Specific MISSION

The Community Foundation of Kawartha Lakes champions inclusion, innovation and prosperity locally by connecting PEOPLE, PROJECTS, PARTNERSHIPS and PHILANTHROPY.

Unique APPROACH

We are focused on strengthening our local philanthropic network by connecting people who care with opportunities to address gaps in local economic development and services.

Professional ENDOWMENT

We’re partnering with a professional portfolio manager to help us grow a sustaining community fund and a pooled fund for partners to grow their own foundations.

Local LEGACY

We are encouraged by the opportunity to help people invest in the City of Kawartha and thus leave their legacies to help build prosperity now and for future generations.

Why a Community Foundation?

Community Foundation

There are more than 190 community foundations in 85% of communities across Canada with almost $5 billion currently under management invested to build stronger communities for all of us.

Community Foundations play a crucial role in how people give back where communities need it most. We connect people, families and companies with causes that inspire them. We pool resources, knowledge and expertise, working with others for even greater impact. And we help donors realize their philanthropic goals by matching their interests with community needs and finding innovative ways to make every donation count.

The Community Foundation of Kawartha Lakes will team up with Community Foundations Canada to help put the strength of our philanthropic network to the best possible use.
