This past year, the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation celebrated 15 years of "Growing our Community". From community grants to our focused youth initiatives, we take pride in all our endeavours. Our sole focus is community - after all, it's in our name! 

Every end has a new beginning. As we look back on what we accomplished in 2016, we can look forward to 2017, in anticipation of continued opportunities to build community. 

If you would like to support our community building initiatives, t'is the season! Gifts to the Community Foundation benefit the whole community. You can make a donation in honour of someone special, or make an In Memorium donation for a friend or loved one. 

We invite you to read on to familiarize yourself with our work in your community.
We continued to invest in our community!

$272,659  in grants
for 30 projects 
to  23 local organizations.
We funded 
summer jobs for local students

Students gained valuable work experience with local charities in a wide variety of job opportunities - from marketing, early childhood education, business administration and theatre production to a hospital laboratory assistant.
