Our Funds

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

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!

A community fund is designed to be open and flexible to address the ever-changing needs and priorities of your community – from environmental concerns to social change and more. The fund is developed by members of the community, for the community, so you can be certain your investment stays local.

The following are the community funds that have currently been established in the province:
