What We Do

The Community Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador’s (CFNL) vision is thriving Newfoundland and Labrador communities where everyone belongs. We support this by stewarding funds and connecting diverse people, ideas and resources.  

Established in 2001, CFNL stewards more than $2 million in philanthropic investment for the benefit of the province. We’re part of Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), the national network for Canada’s 200+ community foundations that, combined, holds $7 billion in resources and reaches 90 percent of the country’s geography. 

Our work takes place in three areas:

  1. Donor Services – stewarding funds on behalf of donors and charities. 

  2. Granting – Making grants from funds stewarded by CFNL and through granting partnerships as part of the Community Foundations of Canada network. 

  3. Community Leadership – Connecting diverse people, ideas and resources through initiatives like Vital Signs NL and participating in a wide array of local, regional and national conversations about the community sector and philanthropy.
