The Greater Saint John Community Foundation was established thirty three years ago, by an Act of the New Brunswick legislature in 1976, to serve as a trustee for charitable, educational and cultural purposes. It is an independent community charity governed by a volunteer board of community leaders. It administers funds, large and small, donated by public-spirited citizens for the benefit of the Greater Saint John area and its people. Its assets have grown to approximately $7.2 Million. Earnings from the permanent endowment funds are donated as annual grants to local charities, for a wide range of worthy causes - youth, seniors, health & medicine, education, the arts, environment & social services. Last year alone, more than $241,000 was donated to charities in Greater Saint John.
