The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia manages a variety of funds that, together, have a combined asset base of over $18 million. Although each fund is unique, they all support a particular community, cause or initiative in Nova Scotia and contribute to our vision of having strong and vibrant communities that embrace philanthropy as a means of growth and future development.

As a donor, establishing a fund with us is simple and effective – we take care of the administration so you can focus on your charitable interests.

Community funds are developed by members of the community, for the community, with all investments staying local.

We participate in initiatives that benefit the community, partnering with government, corporate and other partners.

On behalf on fund holders, we administer scholarships and awards for students and individuals.
