The Stewardship Foundation of Canada

The Stewardship Foundation of Canada exists to unambiguously support charitable donors with their giving. See your giving strategically advance the causes that move and inspire you.

Why Stewardship Foundation?

Conversations about giving are often framed as a pitch from the charitable cause, followed by a yes/no answer from the donor. This creates pressures on both the giver and the charity. We have been told by our donor friends that they:

  • Feel bombarded with requests and sorting through them becomes a burden.
  • Find their giving lacks a unified strategy and personal meaning.
  • Want to ensure that high impact faith-based causes have the support they need, even when those causes do not have sophisticated promotion (the hidden gems).
  • Understand that money is a true blessing but can weigh heavily when not balanced with thoughtful giving.
  • Often find that wealth does not foster emotional health, but instead can bring a sense of isolation. They wish for a trusted community of friends where they can be open about faith, money, and relationships.

The Stewardship Foundation of Canada has been created to help donors with these challenges.
