The Annapolis Royal Community Fund was established to provide a way for all of us to contribute to the community we love and to help ensure that our needs are addressed both now and into the future.

About our fund

The Annapolis Royal Community Fund was created by local residents to enhance the well-being of our community by strengthening the common good, improving our quality of life, and addressing our most challenging issues in thoughtful and meaningful ways. The fund supports the social needs and broad interests of our area including culture, education, arts, heritage, health, sport, recreation, and other cornerstones of our vibrant community.

How our approach is different

Unlike buildings or equipment, your gift to the fund will never outlive its usefulness, contributing to the vitality of the area both today and tomorrow. The Annapolis Royal Community Fund is a permanent endowment fund, meaning only the interest is used to support local causes. What better gift can you give to your friends, your family, and your neighbours?

How the fund works

The fund is administered by local community members who know our area well. These members:

  1. Help to grow the fund and gather community resources to support the fund’s activities;
  2. Actively engage with others to understand the community’s needs and opportunities; and
  3. Grant from the fund to local organizations that make Annapolis Royal a great place to live.
