What we do

We bring grantmakers together, give them a voice, inspire them to action and create greater awareness of their impact on local and global communities.

PROVIDE A COLLECTIVE VOICE

We speak out on legislative, regulatory and other issues that affect foundations.

BUILD A NETWORK

We convene a funder network where we discuss ideas, common concerns and strategies.

INFORM ON GOOD PRACTICE

We provide guidance in grantmaking, governance, and funder practices.

Strategic framework

PFC members demonstrate leadership among their peers and in the community of organized philanthropy in Canada, a community that aspires to grow in effectiveness, and impact. PFC is a voice for this community and inspires its members to lend their own voices to dialogue with communities and policy makers.

Aspiration. Leadership. Voice. Community.

These key framing words shape our new Strategic Framework.

In 2017, we invited members to participate in creating our Strategic Framework for 2017-2020. With their input, we framed goals and strategies to shape the value that PFC can create for members and for the broader community.

Our annual priorities and services to members are shaped by these strategies going forward, in continuing dialogue with members and colleagues.
