Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough

Our Mission

The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough is the vital link between caring community members and local causes that matter. We foster philanthropy by pooling endowed and special funds, while our grants to registered charities enhance the quality of life for our citizens.

Our Catchment Area

The term community is used to identify the nature of our foundation (it is a public, community-based, volunteer-driven philanthropic organization), and in our case, we support all of the communities in the region of Peterborough – the City of Peterborough and the eight townships that comprise the County of Peterborough.

Our Activities

The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough combines its activities into three areas:

  • Endowment building with flexible, comprehensive donor services;
  • Broad and effective grant making; and
  • Inclusive community leadership.
