About Us

The Foundation holds its capital in perpetuity, increasing its value as prudent investment will permit, and distributing the invested income from it annually. The income is used to provide grants to qualified charitable organizations spearheading community-building initiatives in diverse fields such as health care, education, arts and culture, environment and social services.

To be responsible and accountable to our donors, our grantees and our communities, CFPD operates with policies and practices that reflect clearly our vision, mission and values.
