Foundation

The Summer Street Industries Foundation is a registered charity, founded in 1991 as the fundraising arm of Summer Street. The Foundation supports the organization through initiatives that include planned giving programs, capital campaigns and an annual golf tournament.

Sound investment management strategies ensure that we achieve our mandate and assist critical areas requiring funding, including:

  • Support for new and innovative programs which enrich the lives of our clients.
  • Implementation of infrastructure initiatives necessary for operational sustainability. 

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors independent of the Society Board. We are supported by the Executive Director, a Planned Giving Officer and administrative staff. 

In 2016 the Foundation had net revenues of $287,186 and $876,114 in net assets. By the end of 2016 we had contributed over $3,000,000 to the Summer Street Society. 

The Summer Street Industries Foundation meets all criteria as a public foundation under the Income Tax Act.
