Innisfil Community Foundation is forging a new path in funding. We believe our work will be more successful and rewarding if we approach relationships with the non-profits we grant to as an ongoing partnership rather than a one-time transaction.
Improved quality of life for everyone in Innisfil.
To be passionate partners, supporting the local community and sparking ideas into action through financial grants.
A trust-based approach relies on six guiding principles which, when practiced together, can help us achieve more together:
- Provide multi-year, unrestricted funding
- Do the homework
- Be transparent and responsive
- Solicit and act on feedback
- Simplify and streamline paperwork
- Offer support beyond the cheque
We’re practicing a new kind of philanthropy
The kind of philanthropy that builds relationships on trust, that offers multi-year investments when possible, that streamlines processes and allows us to be a true partner.
With community at our core and trust as our default, we’re putting trust-based philanthropy to work by investing in community-driven solutions that will help improve quality of life for everyone in Innisfil.
