The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough (CFGP) is the vital link between caring community members and local causes that matter. We approach our activities from three perspectives:
  • Fund building with flexible, comprehensive donor services;
  • Broad and effective grant making; and
  • Inclusive community leadership

Mayor Bennett Giving Gala

The Mayor Bennett Giving Gala was held on February 7. Over 208 guests braved the snow and raised more than $100,000 to benefit CFGP.

Thank you to our Gala sponsors, to the donors of both live and silent auction items, and to all those who attended. A special mention goes to our wonderful MC, Teresa Kaszuba and to auctioneer, Rob Rusland.
