What is the role of Community Foundations of Canada (CFC)?

Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation is a part of Canada’s Community Foundation movement. Community vitality has been the purpose, promise, and passion of the Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) since 1921, when they started connecting donors to community needs and opportunities.

CFC represents more than 190 Community Foundations across the country. Together, we help Canadians invest in building strong and resilient places to live, work and play, from coast to coast.

Our network serves 82% of Canada’s population – from our largest cities to our smallest towns.

Together we hold combined assets of more than $3.8 billion and we’ve put hundreds of millions
back into communities, including more than $158 million in 2013.
