The Oakville Community Foundation has a great opportunity to increase the size and power of your philanthropy. For a limited time, we are providing matching dollars for both new Funds and new contributions to existing Funds.

When you contribute $1,500 to a new Community Fund, The Foundation will provide the $1,000 needed to establish your Fund. (Available until December 31, 2018.)

If you are already a Fundholder, we will match your donation up to $5,000. If your Fund passes $20,000 in total dollars (including matched funds) you will automatically transition to Donor Advised Fund. (Available until December 31, 2018.)

Whatever you choose – your contributions make a difference in our community today and for years to come.
