To serve as a trustee of gifts, support charitable organizations and inspire community leadership.


To ensure a sustainable future and improve the quality of life in Greater Saint John.



Established in 1976 by an Act of the New Brunswick legislature, the Greater Saint John Community Foundation serves as a trustee for charitable, educational and cultural purposes. We are an independent community charity, governed by a volunteer board of community leaders, administering funds donated by community-minded citizens for the benefit of the Greater Saint John area and its people. Fund earnings are donated as annual grants to local charities, to support a wide range of worthy causes including youth, seniors, health and medicine, education, the arts, environment and social services.
