Mission Statement

The Brockville and Area Community Foundation is dedicated to encouraging the establishment of endowment funds, supporting charitable initiatives and strengthening our community for the benefit of all by providing leadership on key local issues.

Welcome to the Brockville and Area Community Foundation’s website!

We invite you to explore our site to learn about the Foundation and how it works! The central goal of a community foundation is to strengthen the quality of life in the community primarily by building permanent funds that yield interest income that is used to support local charitable initiatives. But they are also much more than that…often acting to strengthen local charities by coordinating activities or supporting collaborative efforts. Please take a look at our site to learn more, or better yet, give us a call. We’d love to tell you about the ways we’ve been able to affect people’s lives.
