Community foundations are charitable organizations which manage and operate endowed funds, and the earnings benefit a geographic community in perpetuity. Community foundation endowment funds provide grants to non-profit societies for community and social enhancement.
The Fraser-Fort George Endowment Funds were established when five electoral areas (A, C, E, F, G and H) participated in Northern Development Initiative Trust's Community Foundation Matching Grant Program which provided $50,000 in matched funding to establish a dedicated endowment. The matching funding came from each electoral area’s Community Grants-In-Aid budget. The Prince George Community Foundation facilitated the funds' establishment and manages the investment of the permanent funds. Donations of charitable gifts are invested in these permanent trust funds, and community groups or organizations can apply for grants from the investment income generated.
