The Community Foundation of Orillia and Area

The Community Foundation of Orillia and Area is a locally run, public foundation that builds and manages permanent endowment funds from charitable donations. In other words, we accept contributions from donors, invest them for long term growth, and distribute the earnings each year to local charities based on their needs and the needs of the community.

We are one of over 180 local community foundations across Canada and serve the communities of Orillia, Ramara, Severn, Oro-Medonte, and the Chippewas of Rama First Nation.
