We are the
Forever Fund
for Dufferin County

Building community across the generations.

What We Do

When you give to Dufferin Community Foundation, we invest your gift into permanent (endowed) funds and use the annual income to give grants to charities, every year… forever. We are 100% local. All of our grants help to meet urgent needs, foster opportunities and enrich quality of life in Dufferin County. Join us as we grow for our community!

It’s time for An Evening Under the Stars!

Tickets are on sale now for our fabulous outdoor gala on Thursday, June 20th. Celebrate the first night of summer with an inspiring evening of live music, a gourmet buffet and auction in the company of a warm community of friends, old and new. READ MORE

Applications are now open for volunteer positions on our Board of Directors and our four committees (Grants, Fund Development, Finance & Administration and Governance). Join our group of dedicated professionals committed to a dynamic and inclusive legacy for Dufferin County. READ MORE
