Northumberland County Fund

Proudly announcing a new fund for Northumberland County!

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Campbellford/Seymour and Northumberland, in a leadership capacity, and in an effort to serve those communities without a community foundation, have created the Northumberland County Fund.

We invite individuals and businesses to consider a donation to the Northumberland County Fund. You will make a lasting difference, working together with us to build a stronger, healthier and more vibrant community for everyone.  Contributions to this fund will be invested and the interest generated will be used to support the community in the form of grants to charitable organizations. 

In order to encourage donations to this fund, the community foundation has committed $10,000 in matching funds - for every dollar you donate, we will donate a matching amount to a maximum of $10,000 to help kick-start this fund. Donor's gifts are invested and the more the fund grows, the more grants we can provide! For example, with a 3.5% disbursement rate:

  • at $25,000 this fund could provide $875 in grants annually
  • at $100,000 this fund could provide $3,500 in grants annually, and 
  • at $1 million this fund could provide $35,000 in grants annually.

If you would like to leave a future gift, such as a bequest in your Will, please contact us.
