The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation

Established in 1937, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation engages Canadians in building a more innovative, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient society. The Foundation’s purpose is to enhance Canada’s ability to address complex social, environmental and economic challenges.

The J. W. McConnell Family Foundation and Community Foundations of Canada have collaborated over the years to leverage each other’s assets, knowledge, skills and networks. Since the launch of our national 2013 Vital Signs report, which highlighted the importance of food in our communities, we have been working together as part of a Pan-Canadian Food Funder collaborative.
