The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia manages a variety of funds that, together, have a combined asset base of over $16 million. Although each fund is unique, they all support a particular community, cause or initiative in Nova Scotia and contribute to our vision of having strong and vibrant communities that embrace philanthropy as a means of growth and future development.

Establishing a Fund with the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia is simple and effective. We take care of all of the administration work so you can focus on your charitable interests.

Community funds are the perfect way to give back to your community. Donations of all sizes are pooled together in a single fund to support local charitable causes, and since it’s a permanent endowment fund, the giving continues forever!

The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia participates in a number of special initiatives with government, community, and corporate partners that benefit Nova Scotians.

The Community Foundation hosts over 20 scholarships and awards for students who will soon start, or are working through, their post-secondary journeys.
