Welcome to the Paterson Foundation Website
The Paterson Foundation was started in 1970 by Senator Norman McLeod Paterson. Since then, the Foundation has been a devoted supporter of community organizations in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario.
The Paterson Foundation is a private, charitable Foundation incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario. It is composed of a Board of Directors that meets twice a year to make decisions on applications received and to deal with other Foundation business.
Grants are made to charitable, non-profit organizations with the major emphasis on projects and programs in the areas of education, health care, religion, social welfare and the arts. The Foundation's prime areas of interest are Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Northwestern Ontario.
Grants may not be made to individuals due to government regulations. Organizations which do not possess a registration number from Revenue Canada are also exempt. It is rare that the Foundation will consider a grant for deficit financing. Read More
