Our Mission
•To build stronger communities by enhancing the philanthropic leadership of community foundations


About Community Foundations
Inclusive. Forward-looking. Fair. Creative. Safe. Green. Fun. There’s no end of words to describe what we want our communities and country to be.

But there’s one word that sums it all up. Vital. The vitality of our communities, or community vitality, is something community foundations care about a great deal.

Community vitality is the unique spirit that flourishes when people believe their community holds possibilities for everyone.

And it can be measured by how well people’s needs are being met: from our most basic needs—sustenance, shelter, health care, safety—to those that give quality to life, such as places and opportunities to play, learn and create.

Our Vision for Communities
All signs point to stronger communities. To us, the best sign for Canada’s communities—our vision for them—is that they are strong and getting stronger. What would this mean?

A vital community is one that:
•Includes and offers opportunities to everyone

•Has the knowledge and ability needed to help shape its own future for generations to come

•Can meet its most important needs, challenges and opportunities, today and in the future
•Is filled with people who are interested and engaged in finding ways to make their community a more vital place to live, work and play

In our vision, our communities are ready to address pressing problems like poverty, unemployment, hunger and housing. And all citizens are able to benefit from the best a community can offer: the arts, recreation, health care, education, safe and inclusive neighbourhoods and a healthy environment.
