CNE Foundation Investment in the Community
At the CNE Foundation, we are committed to supporting organizations that share our community vision and whose mandates fall within one of our core funding pillars. Each year, we award a limited number of Community Grants to local Canadian qualified donees committed to furthering our areas of focus — Agriculture and the Environment, Arts and Culture, Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Community Building — and in support of our vision: “Empowering community. Improving lives.”
In 2021, the CNE Foundation awarded a Community Grant to the Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre’s Youth Program Sector. Made possible through the generosity of the CNE community, through our 2021 Virtual CNE 50/50 raffle, this CNE Foundation Community Grant aims to provide practical and cultural supports to Indigenous youth. Thank you for your support.
