Investing in Sustainable Community Development

Trent Hills has seen firsthand how much a community organization can achieve, because the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation is responsive to community needs and tireless in its efforts to make the municipality the best place to live, work and play.

At the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation, the sole focus is community. They envision a community prospering through cooperation and partnerships, where philanthropy and volunteerism are part of daily life, and where organizations work together to address a full spectrum of community needs.

As a community foundation, the charitable gifts received are pooled into a permanent, income-earning endowment, which is then held in trust for the benefit of the community. Grants are made from the earnings of these funds to seed, nurture and support community initiatives.
