Metcalf Foundation


Description of the Organization

The mission of The George Cedric Metcalf Charitable Foundation is to enhance the effectiveness of people and organizations working together to help Canadians imagine and build a just, healthy, and creative society.

Partnership with PhiLab

We at the Foundation are supportive of this ambitious and important effort to try and better understand foundations engagements with large social and environmental challenges, as well as trying to better assess the impact and implication of foundation practice.

We consider it important as foundations assume a larger role in civil society, and seek to make a more significant contribution to the larger issues affecting their work, that we build up the body of research, literature, and expertise around the implications of this development. Enriching this area would be a benefit to everyone interested in social change work: policymakers, civil society leaders, and government.
