Message from the Executive Director
Hello from all of us at the CFM! We hope you’re enjoying the winter season and all that Muskoka offers to get out and play.
The CFM has just wrapped up its’ first Pub Night Fundraiser at Canvas Brewery and we’re pleased to let you know that the more than 100 people in attendance had a great time, the Tobin Spring band was fantastic (as always), and we raised over $3000 for kids in need in Muskoka! We were able to thank and recognize in person some of our Huntsville area supporters including ProActive Rehab, the Men of Grandview Foundation, Anissa Boosamra of the Live Like Len Fund, and the Huntsville Lions. Thanks again to all our guests that were able to make it out, to our sponsor’s who so generously donated items for a successful silent auction and to Canvas Brewing Co. for hosting us so well.
In other news, we have just kicked off our 5th annual Toni Lynn Rizzuto Campership Fund to send kids in Muskoka to both day and residential camp as well as great local summer programs. Our partners include over 15 OCA (Ontario Camps Association) accredited camps and 15 summer program and day camp providers. We are grateful to our partners who provide such a great variety of opportunities for kids to be active and having new and exciting experiences this summer! Be sure to spread the word - applications are available on our website.
Take care and stay well,

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.
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.
