Your community makes you, and you make your community.

For more than 20 years, The Temiskaming Foundation has devoted itself to the growth and development of our community.


Community foundations are organizations that contribute time, leadership and financial support to local initiatives, helping people give back where their communities need it most.

With an intimate knowledge of local priorities, community foundations champion what matters most by directing grants, expertise, leadership, and other investments towards everything from shelter, education, and care for those in need, to the arts, environment and recreation.


Community foundations play a crucial role in how people give back where communities need it most.

We connect people, families and companies with causes that inspire them. We pool resources, knowledge and expertise, working with others for even greater impact. And we help donors realize their philanthropic goals by matching their interests with community needs and finding innovative ways to make every donation count.



We are a local organization with deep roots in the community, and part of a nationwide movement whose support we build and share.

We bring donors to the table as community builders, working closely with them to align their philanthropic vision with the community’s needs.

We identify long-term needs and opportunities and invest in solutions that let our communities guide their own future.

We take a broad and inclusive view of what a community is, and provide grants to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives.

We provide highly personal and flexible service, accepting a wide variety of assets and offering donors maximum tax advantage.

We build permanent funds and those that can respond to immediate needs, helping our communities ensure vital futures

We believe that diversity is strength, so we bring the entire community together to stimulate new ideas, build participation and strengthen community philanthropy.

We multiply the impact of gift dollars by pooling them with other gifts.

We are transparent and reputable stewards of community resources, committed to being accountable, accessible and responsive.

We build community vitality – the unique and essential spirit that flourishes when people believe their community holds possibilities for everyone.
