Our Mission

Our mission is to focus community resources for the enrichment of the lives of Muskoka children.

The Children's Foundation of Muskoka is an independent, non-profit organization formed in 1989 by volunteers in Muskoka. CFM raises funds in our local community in partnership with individuals, businesses and service organizations. We are also the community partner with Canadian Tire's Jump Start Program.

Through our community partnerships, we help in practical ways when no other help is available. We provide funds for recreational, cultural, medical and emotional needs and opportunities. Our grants provide children in Muskoka the opportunities to grow and develop.

As a foundation, we believe:

  • in the creation of a community where equality of opportunity is offered to all children;
  • that we must be proactive in enabling the community to respond to the needs of children;
  • in helping children and families in situations where other resources are not available;
  • that all grant decisions that are made will be based exclusively on the needs of the children involved;
  • that we must encourage the deployment of volunteers as 'friends of the Foundation' to assist our efforts.
