At the Elgin St. Thomas Community Foundation everything we do is designed to help build more vibrant, healthy and resilient communities across Elgin County

.

With the partnership of caring local people, we invest in community based solutions that create meaningful and lasting impacts.

.

Communities are complex.

That is why every year we fund student scholarships and dozens of innovative projects – with grants large and small – in areas such as arts and culture, education, children and youth, environment, recreation, animal welfare, community health and social services.

We do this primarily by building and managing endowed funds that are invested into perpetuity and granting a portion of the income on those investments to local charities. There are a wide range of services and Fund Designations that allow the flexibility to design an endowment fund that captures your unique vision,…..or donors can simply contribute to any existing Fund. To learn more about this, visit the DONORS section.

We are a member in good standing of Community Foundations of Canada and part of one of the fastest growing charitable movements building community vitality with 191 members.
