The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation

As a national funder in Canada, the Foundation’s focus is on projects and initiatives that extend to all regions of the country, or that address issues from a national perspective. In considering new proposals, the Foundation asks: what impact will this have on communities across Canada? Canada’s geographic reach and cultural diversity afford opportunities for learning from the application of new ideas in different settings. Several of their initiatives support efforts to address issues like poverty or sustainability at the community level, while sharing lessons learned with other project sites across the country. The foundation also supports dissemination of locally generated solutions that have demonstrated potential to benefit communities elsewhere.
