Canada’s community foundations are a national network of public foundations created by and for urban and rural communities to provide lasting support for local priorities. They are recognized sources of knowledge about local issues and are trusted for their ability to expertly manage donors’ funds. Community foundations are one of Canada’s largest grant makers, providing more than $137 million to a wide range of charities in 2006.
The Northeast Regional Community Foundation was incorporated in January 2008. Community Futures Peace Liard has taken the lead in forming the NERCF, a foundation that will respond to all sectors in the northeast region.
