The Dufferin Community Foundation was established with a charter to build endowment funds so that we could distribute the earnings well into the future.
In general, we offer grants to organizations that meet the official eligibility requirements and select those whose projects and programs support the areas of interest and values of our Foundation.
However, community emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic call for special measures. We are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with all the charitable organizations in Dufferin County to ensure that pressing short-term needs are met.
As members of the Community Foundations of Canada, we are uniquely able to participate in national programs, such as last year’s RBC Future Launch Community Challenge and this year’s Federal Government Emergency Community Support Fund.
