The Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (CFNL) is a vehicle that helps individuals, businesses, and charities to establish endowment funds that become permanent community resources. The income from these funds is used to provide annual grants to support community programs across the province in fields like education, arts and culture, health and wellness, environment, and community capacity.
We combine our broad, province-wide reach with a grassroots focus on small organizations that can have a major impact in their local communities. Our goal is to address community problems and to enrich the lives of community members.
