Learn About the CFFLA!
The Community Foundation for Lennox and Addington is part of a worldwide movement of foundations whose objective is to help build stronger and more vibrant communities. In Canada we are a part of Community Foundations of Canada, a network organization to more than 191 community foundations from coast to coast to coast.
We play three key roles!
• We are leaders in identifying local community needs and advocating for meaningful social change. Each community has unique experiences and challenges. Our strength is in bringing people together to address these needs.
• We work with donors who wish to make meaningful and lasting contributions to the well-being of their community
• We support charitable organizations that provide programs and services for the community.
Community foundations bring local knowledge, experience and a network of community relationships to our grant making. We are a charitable public foundation created by and for the people of Lennox and Addington and have a deep knowledge of local needs and opportunities. We act as champions for issues that matter and direct grants to everything from shelter, education, and care for those in need, to the arts, environment, and recreation.
We make charitable giving easy, flexible and effective. We work with you and your advisors to maximize the value of charitable gifts. Our goal is to help you meet important needs in the community, fulfill your charitable goals, and maximize your tax advantages.
Gifts can support any cause you can imagine. We believe in the power of individuals and organizations working together to effect positive change in our community.
Gifts are pooled and invested and form permanent community assets. Earnings from these assets are granted back into the community each year to registered charities.
