ACCOUNTABILITY, ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS AND IMPACT!
In 2016, the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation celebrated its 15th anniversary as a community partner and grant maker. To mark this important milestone a community consultation process took place. 64 individuals provided input through one-on-one interviews or on-line surveys (donors, volunteers, board members, grant beneficiaries and professional advisors) and were asked to share their views on the impact the Community Foundation has had on the Campbellford/Seymour community. Beginning with our commitment to community vitality, we used this information to develop our five-year strategic plan.
The Community Foundation awards some $250,000 in grants each year and has provided grants to more than 56 community organizations. As part of the Flourish Campaign, a commitment of $500,000 has been made to the Campbellford Recreation and Wellness Centre providing $50,000 in annual grants for 10 years. Over the next decade, the Community Foundation will invest another $2.5 Million in the community, thereby creating significant opportunities for community change.
