Start a Fund

Starting a fund with Sarnia Community Foundation is easy and can be completed in less than an hour by answering a few simple questions. 90% of the funds at SCF have begun with a modest donation, including several with a 20 dollar monthly commitment. Continued donations and our careful investment strategy have built those funds over time. All that is required is a commitment to add to the fund on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis. Having your own fund means that the recommendations you make as a fund advisor benefit our community in ways that matter most to you. today, tomorrow, forever.

If you don’t see something you’d like to support in our list of already established funds, we’d be happy to discuss alternatives with you.

Our team pays close attention to the needs in our communities and can recommend giving options, and granting opportunities that will help you make a difference right now and in the future.
