Mayor Bennett Giving Gala

The Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough fosters philanthropy by pooling endowed and special funds and providing grants to registered charities in order to enhance the quality of life for local citizens. The Foundation enables all community members to contribute to positive, lasting changes in the community, and is a part of a national network of community foundations that exist in more than 175 Canadian communities.

On November 30, 2011, Mayor Bennett and the Foundation announced plans for the Inaugural “Mayor Bennett Giving Gala,” a new community event designed to support the Foundation in its work of assisting charities in all sectors within the City and County of Peterborough. The event is an evening of cocktails, dinner and entertainment that is open to everyone.

The total amount raised through donations, sponsorship and community support of the annual Mayor Bennett Giving Gala in support of the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough has reached about $660,000 since the inception of the event in 2012.

For further information, please contact the Foundation at or 705-740-2347.
