How to donate

donation-thankyouThe Massawippi Foundation is a community foundation. Over 170 villages, towns and cities across Canada have already created their own community foundations. With combined assets of $3 billion, these foundations distribute close to $200 million each year in support of their local activities.

Almost any asset can be donated: money, securities, stock and more. Flow-through donations to specific local charities, Planned Gifts and tax-efficient Legacy Gifts are also encouraged.

Community foundations are the fastest growing form of philanthropy in North America today. They are far simpler and less expensive to establish than private foundations, and give individual donors or families the confidence that their contributions will be distributed according to their wishes, in perpetuity.
