Canton Community Fund | Who We Are
Canton Community Fund | Messages from the Board
The Canton Community Fund is a community-based organization that financially supports projects aiming to sustain and improve life in the Village and Town of Canton.
The Board of the Canton Community Fund is comprised of a cross section of our community. Some of us were born and raised in Canton; some of us have been here for many years. A few of us are real newcomers, and have enjoyed the warm welcome we've been given. We all live and work in Canton, and share a passion for this community -and we want to do our part to make it better. We hope you'll join us. Become a donor to the Canton Community Fund, and help us support our friends and neighbors in Canton.
"I joined the Canton Community Fund Board because I believe in the life and health of our community. So many people have wonderful ideas that will improve Canton, and it is so fulfilling to help provide funds to make these ideas come to life."
- Lenore VanderZee, Board Member
"Getting involved in the life of Canton was a natural thing to do after my wife, young son, and I moved to Canton in 2001. I have served on many Boards of area non-profits, which is how we became aware of the Canton Community Fund. In my mind, the Fund meets the true measure of community spirit by providing small, targeted grants that support or sustain the life of our town and village. While the Fund may not be large, its ability to react quickly to bridge immediate needs is crucial to the fabric of our lives here in Canton."
- Brett Thacher, Board Member
