GETINVOLVED_Funds_BetsyMartinThe Betsy Martin Fund

We established The Betsy Martin Fund in memory of our friend and colleague Betsy Martin. We are honoured to accept donations in Betsy’s name, as was requested by her family in lieu of flowers.

Betsy was a leader in a variety of fields over the course of her career, with the broad area of social finance being a driving passion of hers over the past decade.

Proceeds from The Betsy Martin Fund will be used to support social finance related activities, projects and programs. Unlike many endowment funds, the capital of this fund can itself be invested in socially responsible, mission-related or other impact investments.

The Monica Patten Fund is a permanent endowment fund created by Monica’s colleagues and friends to pay tribute to our organization’s founding CEO and support our ongoing operations. Monica is recognized for her long-time leadership and commitment to philanthropy in Canada.
Proceeds from the The Monica Patten Fund will allow us to continue building and supporting the community foundation movement for generations to come. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your gift is eligible for a 50% match.
