Community Matters

A lot has changed in recent years, and as we continue to navigate these changes as a community, we are mindful of the important voice of our friends, neighbours, and Northumberland County residents like you. Our community matters, and your perspective is crucial.

We’re launching Community Matters, a county-wide engagement project, to better understand the aspirations and experiences of individuals and families in Northumberland County.

  • We are engaging one-on-one with community partners, social service providers, and local leaders to uncover their hopes and dreams for our community, while also identifying our greatest strengths and opportunities.
  • We are visiting libraries and centres across Northumberland County, listening to the invaluable insights of those who live, work, and play here.
  • We’ve launched an anonymous survey to gathers confidential insights to earn a deeper understanding of the needs and gaps within our community.

We want to hear from you. This knowledge is instrumental in shaping our investments, programs, and advocacy work, ensuring that every dollar from our generous donors is channeled where it can have the greatest impact.

Complete our confidential community survey online.
