Watertown Foundation, Our Heritage

The Watertown Foundation will celebrate 100 years of charitable giving to Watertown and Oakville in a few short years. The Watertown Foundation and its members invite you to join our milestone journey to a century of community service.

The Watertown Foundation is the only community foundation dedicated solely to the Watertown and Oakville community.

A group of residents established the Watertown Foundation in 1925 to enhance the quality of life in our community through local charity. By combining their gifts and working together to invest their contributions and assess the community’s needs, our charter members began an extraordinary legacy.

Today, many of your neighbors continue to support the foundation’s exceptional tradition of community giving. This invitation to membership is your opportunity to join them.
