Ottawa Community Foundation Supports New iSisters Community Impact Project
iSisters is very proud to have the support of the Ottawa Community Foundation for its new Community Impact Project in partnership with the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation (OCHF) and Britannia Woods Community House (BW).
The iSisters Community Impact Project empowers local women in need, often young mothers, with computer and job search skills to overcome unemployment and limited education. Through sustainable and meaningful collaboration, we will offer women and female youth served by OCHF’s Britannia Wood’s House a curriculum that meets their specific needs and interests in a safe and familiar onsite space, at their very own community centre.
The Ottawa Community Foundation is a public, non-profit organization created by and for the people of Ottawa. It connects donors who care with causes that matter and serves as a trusted resource for addressing issues and leveraging opportunities in the community. It attracts and manages a growing endowment, the invested earnings of which provide grants to charitable organizations.
The Foundation’s role is as neutral broker in support of all charitable causes that contribute to the community’s quality of life. With a growing profile, the Ottawa Community Foundation has built an enviable reputation for astute financial management, high-quality donor services, strategic grantmaking and innovative partnerships.
