ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION
Your contribution is part of a lasting legacy
The Deep River and District Community Foundation was established in 2002 to ensure a consistent source of funds for providing long-term benefits to the local community. To date, the DRDCF has given back over $635 Thousand to our community, and our Foundation’s assets have grown to over $1.5 Million.
Donated funds are invested long-term, and the earned income is disbursed annually. Grants are given in the broad areas of Social Services, Health, the Environment, Education, Arts and Culture, and Community Events and Facilities. The foundation supports the Communities of Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara, Maria and Rapides-des-Joachims.
Our nine-member volunteer board of directors meets regularly to manage the funds.
