Welcome to the Donner Canadian Foundation

Philanthropy Rooted in Five Generations

The Donner Canadian Foundation is a family foundation that invests in creative solutions to critical problems faced by Canada and the world. We support initiatives at the community, national, and international levels.

The Donner Canadian Foundation’s office sits on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat peoples, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Although the staff of the foundation works in Toronto, its granting and public programs reach across the lands of many more First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, and we are grateful for their stewardship and leadership. As a signatory to the Philanthropic Community’s Declaration of Action, the foundation is committed to learning, building relationships, and using its resources – in concert with Indigenous communities – to support reconciliation.
