Message from the Executive Director

January 2023

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a happy and healthy holiday season with perhaps a little snow removal thrown in for good measure?!


The CFM finished off 2023 with a bang after a very successful fundraising raffle. We surpassed our goal and raised $6 075 over 3 weeks - we are very grateful to all our supporters and those local businesses that donated incredible prize packages.


Some very special donations should be noted as well. Brad and Sarah Dunkley, owners of Santa’s Village, Bracebridge have donated once again to the CFM - $25 000! 11 year-old Peyton Imrie, pictured above, along with her Nana, completed her 3rd fundraiser at Christmas. Her ‘Wishlets’ sales resulted in a donation of $3480! Finally, Ms. Pape’s grade 4 / 5 class at Pine Glen PS held a fundraiser before Christmas and raised $174 for the CFM!


This is just a small sample of the many donations that came in during 2022 and continue to allow us to do the important work we do supporting Muskoka kids who need us most. When we see firsthand examples of kids helping kids, we know that the future of Muskoka is in good hands.


All the best for 2023 - we hope to see you at one of our upcoming pubnight fundraisers across Muskoka!

Dave

$6,075 Raised to Support kids in Muskoka!

Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets to support our raffle.

Donation in Memory of Kim Jackson

Casey Jacob gratefully accepts a very generous donation from Isabella Jackson on behalf the Jackson family in memory of her mother, Kim Jackson (nee Mochula). Kim was a Huntsville native, and passionate educator who led a life dedicated to nurturing, mentoring teaching and supporting children of all ages. Her family describes her as a beautiful soul, yoga instructor and spiritual being who loved to travel, especially to Mexico.

This donation will go a long way to ensuring Muskoka kids have access to activities and opportunities that they may otherwise not be able to access. Thank you to the Jackson family for your generosity and for choosing the CFM to help to carry on Kim's legacy of advocating for all children.


Our Mission:

To help create an equitable Muskoka where all children have access to the opportunities and support they need to be happy, healthy, and feel a sense of belonging.

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.

Through our community partnerships, we are able to help children and families in practical ways when no other help is available. We provide funds to meet the recreational, cultural, and emotional needs of the children we serve. 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 and 'Friends of the Foundation' to assist our efforts.

The CFM offers post secondary funding through the generosity of the Onaway Pond Foundation.
