The Ottawa Community Foundation is a very flexible yet secure philanthropic vehicle that is available to anyone who would like to give something back to the community. Donations are pooled into an ever-growing, permanent endowment fund and only the earnings generated through its investment are distributed in the form of grants. Thus donors can be confident that a gift to the Community Foundation, no matter how small or in what form, is a gift that will continue to give for many years to come — forever, in fact.
