Town & Country Event Highlights

Big city issues make up the headlines we see every morning. But there are many more communities that deserve our attention.
More than boats and ski slopes, central Ontario has a rich, fragile environment and complex social and economic issues.

On August 25th nearly 40 friends and Fundholders gathered to learn about philanthropy in rural central Ontario. The event was co-hosted by Annabel Slaight, Founder of ClearWater Farms in Georgina. We learned about the farm’s model as a social enterprise, anchoring efforts to grow a local food economy that will revitalize the community. Our guests enjoyed a farm fresh lunch while hearing from our community foundation colleagues about how philanthropy is addressing some of the region’s most pressing issues.
If you’re a Fundholder interested in expanding your philanthropy outside of Toronto, ClearWater Farms is just one of many organizations doing high-impact work in the¬†region. Contact Torey Kehoe, Donor Engagement Officer for more information at 416-921-2035 x 230 or by email.
