Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) is the national leadership organization for Canada’s 191 local community foundations. Together with community foundations across the country, CFC helps drive local solutions for national change on the issues that matter most to Canadians. CFC is building a movement that connects community foundations, Canadians and partners to create a just, sustainable future.
CFC’s programming targets pressing social issues in Canada, including youth engagement, gender equality, support for entrepreneurship and social innovation, and community-level connections with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) among many other topics. In addition to thematic programming, CFC also hosts a bi-annual national conference for community and private foundations, runs the country’s largest community-driven data program, and hosts The Learning Institute, a resource centre for local foundations which provides programming guides, webinars, and events.
