About the Foundation

The Stella’s Circle Foundation is a registered charity, established in 2005 to secure financial support for the work of Stella’s Circle.

Each year, the Foundation undertakes projects and campaigns that raise funds for a variety of programs as well as for building developments and other capital assets needed to achieve the mission of Stella’s Circle.

We are extremely grateful to our individual donors, our major sponsors, and our government funders for their support.

Our Donor Privacy Guidelines can be found here. We also have a Gift Acceptance Policy which indicates that the Stella’s Circle Foundation Board gratefully accepts gifts from individual donors, corporations, foundations and other grantors that will further the mission of Stella’s Circle. Adherence to the Gift Acceptance policy will maintain the integrity of the organization and the Foundation Board members by providing consistency in the acceptance of gifts and in the administration of the gift acceptance process. Gifts should be in alignment with the mission and vision of the organization.

Stella’s Circle greatly appreciates a group, business or individual’s interest in organizing a fundraising event in support of the programs and services of the organization.
