Do you want to make Oakville a better place to live, work, learn and grow? Are you ready to invest in our town’s future?

The Oakville Community Foundation helps you to give back where your community needs it most.

The Foundation is located on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, part of the Anishinaabe Nation.

The title of this piece of art is ‘Nanzunzaughewazog’ (having two outlets) is the Anishinaabe name for the Oakville area referring to the bottom of 16 Mile Creek.

With an intimate knowledge of local priorities, we direct grants, expertise, leadership, and other investments where they are needed; toward everything from shelter, education, and care for those in need, to the arts, environment and recreation.

Origins of The Oakville Community Foundation
Bruce Etherington, one of our founders, first heard of a community foundation while attending a conference in the US in the late 80’s. He knew instantly this was something Oakville needed and brought the idea to the Town and Council. With the support of Anne Mulvale, following her election as Mayor, they spent several years building the resources and infrastructure and in 1994, established the Community Foundation of Oakville.

We connect people who care to causes that matter

Since our founding, The Oakville Community Foundation has provided over $21 million in charity grants and has accumulated $103 million in assets, growing our pool of resources to support the community. Our accomplishments include:

Establishing over 175 family and organization funds
Building Oakville’s Heritage Trails, in partnership with the Town of Oakville
Designating endowment funds to support youth, the environment, heritage and others
“Caring about the future is what The Oakville Community Foundation does so well. When the Refugee Crisis evolved, they listened to Fundholders’ desires to do something. They determined what the community needed, and set up a new Fund that will continue to build long-term support for these new families. They made it possible for people to help as much as they could.”
-Peter and Eve Willis, Fundholders

Building more effective philanthropy
We connect people, families and companies with causes that inspire them. We pool resources, knowledge and expertise, working with others for even greater impact. And we help donors realize their philanthropic goals by matching their interests with community needs and finding innovative ways to make every donation count.
