OUR STORY

Community means so many things to so many people, and the world to us. In all we do and all we say, we are all for community.

For the Temiskaming Foundation, community vitality has been our purpose, promise and passion since 1994 when we started connecting donors to community needs and opportunities. Together, we help build strong and resilient places to live, work and play. We do this by identifying long-term needs and opportunities and investing in sustainable solutions, helping our communities become resilient, resourceful, and ready for the future.

Planning for long-term needs takes long-term resources, so we work with donors to build perpetual endowment funds that ensure vital futures for our communities. We receive funds in trust from private and public sources, then invest them with professional fund managers. The interest generated from the endowed funds is granted to community organizations and non-profit organizations.

By donating to the Temiskaming Foundation, you are ensuring that your support goes to and stays in our community, and it keeps giving back year after year. In our vision, our community is inclusive and provides opportunities to all. We want to ensure that all our citizens are able to benefit from the best our community can offer: the arts, recreation, health care, education, safe and inclusive neighbourhoods and a healthy environment.
