Unique in all that we do, why?

The Foundation offers a variety of giving options and is pleased to accept online donations to enable you to make a donation.

What can you give to?

At The Foundation you can give to an existing fund, give to The Foundation in support of our research and community leadership work, or to start your own fund (see Individuals & Families for more on Types of Funds). See ‘Ways to Give’ below for details.

Whether it’s in making a single gift, or setting up an endowment fund, or contributing to an existing fund we can help.

You can give now, or over time (min $60 required monthly).

You can give later through an estate plan or future gift – ask us how

We have one simple role – helping you make the most impactful charity donation. We work with you and our charity partners to ensure that your gifts are made in the most timely and effective way. We are also the eyes and ears of the community, focused on knowing what the critical issues are, and how your charitable giving can and does make an impact.

We are focused on the future – we help provide vital research on life in Oakville and enable discussions for supporting, and sustaining local charities for now and the long term. We are exploring new ways to make a collective impact hand-in-hand with partners who share our vision.
