About this grant

This grant provides continued general purposes support to Community Foundations of Canada, a membership association of 123 community foundations. Support allows the association to respond effectively to member requests for professional and technical development, to provide national efforts to raise the visibility of the community foundation movement, and to strengthen philanthropic leadership in Canada. Focus over the next two years will include: providing better information and training opportunities to members by upgrading on-line materials; planning a national conference in 2004 in Quebec; developing a campaign to help members educate donors and professional advisor groups; and continuing educational outreach and public policy efforts that impact federal and provincial governmental entities.
