CFM proud to donate $1,270 to TLDSB Feed ALL 4 Fund in honour of Deborah Niemi
Director of Education Wes Hahn welcomed the Children’s Foundation of Muskoka Executive Director Dave Lyons and President Cheryl Cooper, recognizing the good work that takes place for students and their families in the District of Muskoka. Cooper shared her history with the foundation and the growth of impact in the Muskoka area since the Children’s Foundation’s inception several years ago. The Foundation relies on community donations to provide funding based on unique needs of children. This support varies from arts or sports fees to car seats, strollers, cribs, to camp attendance, clothing, bikes, and even beds. A $1,270 contribution to the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) Feed All Four Fund will be made in honour of Deborah Niemi, a former teacher in the Board. Lyons told trustees that the TLDSB Feed All Four Fund is a demonstration of deep care and compassion for children, something that would have resonated for Deborah. The Children’s Foundation of Muskoka is grateful for the assistance TLDSB is providing to families in need.
The CFM is excited to announce a huge contribution from the Rizzuto Family & a new partnership with the Men of Grandview
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.
