The Headingley Community Foundation Inc. is a collection of funds and resources given by caring citizens and businesses that have chosen to help make their community a better place to live, now and in the future….
The Foundation serves as a “philanthropic partner” for people wishing to establish a permanent, yet flexible, method to handle current and future charitable gifts. This is done through the creation of endowment funds, the earnings of which support innovative projects and organizations within the community.
Donors derive many benefits by giving to their community through the Headingley Community Foundation Inc.
We can design a program to help donors achieve their charitable goals.
We honour and protect the charitable intentions of our donors in perpetuity.
We know the community, its needs and assets. We work closely with local organizations to improve community life and make things better. A donor’s gift will never be “out of date”.
The donor may add gifts of any size to the fund at any time.
As a Registered Charity, we provide official receipts that offer maximum tax advantages.
We are governed by a volunteer board, the majority of who are Headingley residents.
The Headingley Community Foundation Inc. is a flexible organization through which donors can help a variety of community needs. Donors can establish their own fund to assist a specific area of interest or charity…or may choose to support one of the Foundation’s existing funds. We also help donors target their dollars toward projects that meet Headingley’s most pressing challenges and opportunities. We believe that by strengthening community organizations, we strengthen our community as a whole.
