The Temagami Community Foundation enables members of the Temagami community to help care for the community. The Foundation is managed by community members whose sole purpose is to receive and distribute contributions for the benefit of the community.
Ways to Give
All gifts are welcome, small and large. Gifts to the Foundation can be in the form of endowments made during one’s lifetime, memorial donations, bequests in a will, gifts of life insurance, gifts of securities or real estate and many more options.
Please specify where you would like us to apply your donation:
|Council of 100||A $5000 donation or pledge gives you a lifelong membership to the Temagami Community foundation. The funds go toward a permanent endowment of operation costs of the Foundation, providing a solid base from which it can continue to support the community.|

Our endowment fund is prudently managed so that income will be available in perpetuity for the benefit of the community. The Foundation is a public Canadian Charitable Foundation. It has received both its Canadian and American charitable registrations. Both Canadian and American donors will receive full benefit for making donations to the Foundation. All donations are gratefully received and acknowledged with a charitable receipt for tax purposes. American donations will receive a “501-c-3” tax receipt.
