The Foundation

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation is committed to promoting positive social change by funding a combination of programs and projects in our priority areas of Environment, Housing, Adult Education and Impact Investing.

Established in 2003, the Catherine Donnelly Foundation is the financial legacy of a remarkable group of women religious, The Sisters of Service. The Foundation is a living testament to the Sisters' tradition of response to the greatest needs in communities across Canada.

The CDF board, staff and grantees are people of any religious faith, or no specific faith.

Please see for more information about who we are, our history, and the programs and projects we fund.  


Board of Directors

By November 2019, the CDF will need three new board members for our 14 member national board, with some emphasis on candidates outside Ontario.

Specific priorities given new board vacancies are one or more of the following:

  • organizational leadership
  • strategic planning
  • adult education for social justice.
  • experience in working within a faith-based organization would be excellent

We encourage Indigenous persons and members of visible and ethic minorities to apply.


Board Commitment:

The CDF Foundation Board meets twice a year in Toronto, once in the spring and once in the fall, for two full days.  Board Members also serve on at least one, usually two board committees, either in person or by conference call or internet.
