About us

Stewardship, Leadership, Partnership

A community foundation is not just about raising money for the community. It is about investing in the community and being committed to raising community spirit and awareness.

At the Community Foundation of Campbellford/Seymour and Northumberland, our sole focus is community. We envision a community prospering through cooperation and partnerships, where philanthropy and volunteerism are part of daily life, and where organizations work together to address a full spectrum of community needs.

Our purpose is threefold:

  • To act as good stewards of the funds realized from the sale of the public utility and further bequests that may follow.
  • To provide leadership in identifying community needs and opportunities to improve all citizens’ quality of life.
  • To work with community partners to fund and complete projects that will enhance the community of Campbellford/Seymour and Northumberland County.
