Building a Greater Saint John

Since 1976, The Greater Saint John Community Foundation has been serving as a trustee of gifts that enhance and strengthen the quality of life in the Greater Saint John area. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the philanthropic means to move our whole community forward in big ways and small ways, always. By linking caring donors to the needs and interests of our community, together with our partners, we are building a Greater Saint John.

We live, work, and play in the Wabanaki Confederacy, the ancestral and unsurrendered land of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), Mi’kmaq and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726.
