A Brief Overview of Successes for the County Community Foundation:
The County Community Foundation (CCF) is a not-for profit registered charity working with private donors, communities, and charitable organizations to stimulate charitable giving, establish permanent endowment funds, and support initiatives which make an ongoing difference in all areas of Prince Edward County. We are a partner in keeping resources in the community for County priorities, helping donors to realize their philanthropic goals by managing investments which will have lasting impact and support meaningful community projects. Since our inception, we have achieved real and tangible credibility in our community and are a relevant leader and participant in community change. Our objective is to make a LASTING impact in our community through our relevance and our sustainability. Our actions and financial goals are geared to both, with a focus on our Vital Signs priorities: food security, learning and transportation. Another key factor to our success today is our volunteer Board of Directors. We are a working board, committed to taking the CCF forward. We meet monthly, have a strategic planning retreat yearly, and have set out clear financial and advocacy goals.
