Community Foundations of Canada Board of Directors opportunity

Are you an energetic community builder who is passionate about community and philanthropy? Know someone who wants to make a contribution to our network? CFC’s Board of Directors is inviting nominations for new members.

The mission

Community Foundations of Canada is the national network for Canada’s 191 community foundations. Together we help Canadians invest in making our communities better places to live, work and play. Collectively we hold combined assets of more than $5.2 billion and we’ve put hundreds of millions back into communities over our 97-year history. We put the strength of our philanthropic network to the best possible use for our communities and our country. We’re championing the issues that matter to Canadians with an eye on the change we can make, now and for future generations. We’re exploring new ways to make a collective impact hand-in-hand with partners who share our vision.
