Community Foundation of Halton North

The Community Foundation of Halton North (CFHN) is thrilled to announce that in 2023, the Foundation granted $713,000 to support charitable organizations and nonprofits in North Halton. This significant contribution aims to enhance the impact of community initiatives, uplift local charities, and foster positive change in Halton Hills and Milton

CFHN is different and gaining in popularity. Why? It’s different because its donors and local volunteers direct long term funds annually in the community providing care-free philanthropy flexible enough for any and all charities.  It’s For Good For Ever.

Earlier this week, donors, volunteers and many of the organizations that received grants in 2023 came to the CFHN office for a celebration of philanthropy.

Chair of Marketing, Darryl Demille addressed the group and thanked everyone for attending and celebrating this significant event.  Demille stated “CFHN builds endowments and grants back into the community.   That’s what we do and that is what we need to continue to do, build the fund.  If every charity had their own endowment, a steady stream of income would be granted to that charity, every year, forever and CFHN would be proud to help with that.”
