Community Fund

Donate to the Community Fund today

Join us in creating a vibrant, diverse and inclusive Hamilton by contributing to the Community Fund. Last year, over $2 million in critical grants were provided to local charities.

The Community Fund responds to Hamilton’s most pressing issues now and into the future.  The fund provides grants to local organizations that are working in areas like affordable housing, education, equity, arts and the environment. It also fuels the Foundation’s community leadership efforts that work to make long-lasting change for our city.

The Community Fund also has two streams supporting these specific areas:

Arts Endowment Fund helps ensure a strong, vibrant and sustainable arts sector in Hamilton by making grants that support community art and access, capacity building and sustainability. All donations will be matched.

Environment Endowment Fund supports a wide range of initiatives and organizations that are important to Hamilton’s environmental well-being, from conserving our natural environment to supporting a green economy and to citizen engagement. All donations will be matched.

Make a donation to HCF’s Community fund and join this collaborative effort to help local people and organizations.
