Through our GIVEOakville Campaign, the Foundation committed to supporting and enabling more localized granting for charities in our community. A key element of this undertaking was seeing opportunities to build awareness for the charities within our changing community – a community with younger, more diverse residents. GIVEOakville is unique as it offers more diverse offerings through broader programming, and builds opportunities for new community members to play a philanthropic role.
