The Brant Community Foundation facilitates philanthropy and charitable giving in Brantford and Brant County. Donations to the Foundation are invested as permanently endowed funds to generate income for charitable purposes in the community, year after year. Donations (WORD) (PDF) are directed into various funds in which the proceeds are allocated to specific areas of interest, although some donors prefer to start their own self-directed fund. Grant(PDF) (WORD) requests are received from local charitable organizations, and evaluated by a committee prior to approval and disbursement.
The BCF offers a customized service for donors of all means, from facilitating annual charitable giving, to providing an attractive and less onerous alternative to starting a private foundation. Contact us at 519-756-2499 for more information about the BCF, or to have a confidential review of the alternatives that may be appropriate for your personal situation.
