Connecting the dots – The Foundation’s look ahead – Updates to our Granting programs

Taking Vital Signs from Creating Solutions to Funding Solutions


Since 2015, The Foundation has been undertaking extensive research following the release of our latest version of Oakville’s Vital Signs report entitled ‘Community of Contrasts’.  The report identified the four biggest challenges or ‘pillar issues’ in our community: the equity gap, housing for all, mental health, and inclusion/diversity.

The Foundation is embarking on new methods of granting – complete details can be found on our Granting section

What and who are making a difference in our communities and where you, our donors, volunteers and fundholders are supporting.

What inspires us, year after year, is the opportunity to make a difference in virtually every aspect of community life. We focus our granting around four key areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact:

  • Housing
  • Mental Health
  • Inclusion & Diversity
  • Equity Gap

We encourage you to explore the work and stories of so many charities in our community.
