Why choose Muskoka Community Foundation?

  1. We Have Deep Roots in Muskoka
    Muskoka Community Foundation was established in 2007 by local volunteers. Our Board of Directors consists of a dedicated group of volunteers who care about how and what happens where we live: just like you.
  2. We Work with You to Help You Realize Your Philanthropic Goals
    We help you support the causes you care about so you can have a lasting impact on your community. You choose the type of fund you want and your level of involvement in grant-making. We collaborate with local community services organizations and community leaders to identify current priorities to help you make informed granting decisions, and your philanthropic vision a reality.
  3. We Grant with Impact
    We take a broad and inclusive view of the issues and emerging trends in Muskoka and provide grants to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives.
  4. We Nurture Community Vitality
    We go beyond granting to bring the entire community together to stimulate new ideas, build participation and strengthen philanthropy. We build capacity promoting community conversations through our Vital Signs Report to identify areas of concern and lead the way to facilitate change.
  5. We Provide Personal and Flexible Service
    We work with you to find the type of giving to meet your financial situation. This could mean creating your own fund or giving to a fund that already exists.
