Oakville Community Foundation (OCF) was established in 1994, and is the largest charitable asset in the Town of Oakville dedicated to building community through philanthropy, having accumulated over $100 million in assets.

Looking forward, OCF is focussed on knowing and understanding Oakville even more deeply to continue to support strategic philanthropy. OCF has advanced the development of their impact investing and responsible strategy, with a particular focus on place-based impact investing
