Be part of the DUFFERIN LEGACY


The power of many.  Today and forever.

The Dufferin Community Foundation supports vital charity work by building and managing endowed funds, ensuring sustainability for generations to come. We connect caring community members to worthwhile causes that enrich the well-being of Dufferin County.

PROBLEM #1   Too many charities in our communities depend on public fundraising initiatives or grants from municipalities or other levels of government to break even.

PROBLEM #2   Too much of these charities’ time is devoted to fundraising rather than the integral services they provide to those in their communities.


SOLUTION?   There is a fundraising paradigm shift beginning to take shape within Orangeville, Shelburne and the rest of Dufferin County.


It’s a charitable model where donations from local individuals are pooled and invested into a community endowment fund. Earnings are then distributed to eligible charities every year.
