The Community Foundation of Nova Scotia is governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of community leaders from across the province and is administered by professional staff. These men and women bring a wealth of skills and expertise to their work for the Foundation.

If you would like to get involved with the Foundation’s activities our Board committees are always looking for additional help. Contact us today to find out what opportunities might be available.
