Welcome to the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation (PPDCF)!
Our goal is to meet the community's greatest need through charitable giving.
Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation launches new Emergency Community Support Fund
Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now. Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations. The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally to Renfrew County to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $75,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting vulnerable populations. Organizations can apply starting on May 19, 2020.

Due to Covid-19, the Pembroke Petawawa District Community Foundation has realized its direction has abruptly changed its immediate mandate. The annual granting application process was postponed until 2021. The Community Foundation, however, continues to focus on the needs of the community.
Recently, the PPDCF granted $20,000 to local area food banks as phase one response to COVID-19. Phase two details are being developed by the PPDCF Board according to the mandate and the community's greatest needs.
