Celebrating a strong, creative, resilient Lunenburg County
NOW, MORE THAN EVER...
A community fund is the perfect way to give back to your community. Donations of all sizes are pooled together in a single fund to support local charitable causes, and since it’s a
permanent endowment fund, the giving continues forever. The fund is designed to be open and flexible to address the ever-changing needs and priorities of your community, from
environmental concerns to social change and more. It’s also developed by members of the community for the community, so you can be certain your investment stays local and is directed to where it’s needed most.
The Lunenburg County Community Fund is overseen by a local board of directors with the financial contributions managed by the Community Foundation of Nova Scotia. What started with a small group of concerned citizens in 2009 has since committed $1 million to support the clean-up of the LaHave River, sparked the launch of NOW Lunenburg County and the hiring of Tina Hennigar, a full-time population growth coordinator, to spearhead the initiative inspired by findings in the Ivany Report. The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia hosts a growing network of community funds across the province. Atlantic Canada’s First Nations Communities have just established the Ulnooweg Indigenous Communities Foundation. The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia’s long-term goal is to see
a community fund in every economic centre in Nova Scotia.
