What is a Foundation?

A simple definition of a community foundation is a “pooling of resources in the community for the community”. Technically speaking, it is an incorporated not-for-profit organization which is registered with the Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency as a tax-exempt public foundation and is allotted a charitable registration number. The foundation is allowed to issue income tax receipts for contributions.
