Who We Are
The Community Foundation of Halton North (CFHN) has been providing grants to charities in Halton Hills and Milton since 2015. With a current endowment of almost $5 million, CFHN has granted over $1.5 million in its very short history. CFHN is one of over 200 Community Foundations serving Canadian communities from coast to coast to coast.
Community Foundations have three purposes:
1. Grow Endowment Funds
Through generous contributions, CFHN donors create endowment funds. The initial gifts are never spent but create revenue year after year, decade after decade which is the source of the granting dollars.
2. Grant to Charitable Causes
Every year, the Community Foundation of Halton North connects donors to local community needs and opportunities. Grants generated from donors’ funds support charitable causes which helps to build strong and vibrant communities.
3. Foster Philanthropic leadership
Philanthropy, especially through Community Foundations such as CFHN, is a powerful catalyst for strengthening local communities. CFHN works with charities to understand the funding gaps in Halton Hills and Milton and can connect donors to charitable causes.
