The Foundation is proud to participate in the Fund for Gender Equality in Canada, a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund which is supported by the Government of Canada.

In 2022, the Fund will be hosted by participating Canadian community foundations who will make a total of $3.4M available to projects in their home communities.

We believe it is vital that the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough actively participates in the advancement of gender equality so that we may help create a community of true belonging right here in the Peterborough region. By participating in the Fund for Gender Equality, we and other participating foundations are also committing to a number of other actions, including an examination of our own organizational and investment practices.
