Thank you Dave! Best wishes from the CFM.
Message from the Executive Director
Dave Smith, a big supporter of children in Muskoka!!
Local realtor and businessman Dave Smith recently made good on his
commitment to donate a portion of his commission to the Children’s Foundation
of Muskoka. The property recently sold was one owned by Foundation President,
Cheryl Cooper, and Smith wanted to use the sale to highlight how important it is
right now to support our local charities. Smith himself, who is also a Director of
the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation, sees and understands first-hand the
annual needs of these charities, which are incredibly important and vital to the
Muskoka community, but have struggled to raise funds, given the restrictions of
the Covid environment.
Gravenhurst IDA Donates $300 to the CFM.
The Gravenhurst IDA recently ran a window heart fundraiser. They graciously donated the proceeds of the campaign to the CFM. Everyone at the CFM would like to thank both IDA and the people of Gravenhurst for supporting youth in their community.
A New Partnership is born with the Live Like Len Foundation!
To help create an equitable Muskoka where all children have access to the opportunities and supports they need to be happy, healthy, and feel 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.
