A local organization recently raised $100,000 which will help support charities in Milton and Halton Hills.
Earlier this month, Community Foundation Halton North (CFHN) celebrated its 10th anniversary along with the Milton and Halton Hills communities and nine local charities.
The celebration was a hybrid event that combined CFHN’s physical presence at the Milton and Georgetown Farmers’ Markets, at the new home of CFHN and online through its first-ever webathon that lasted a total of 10 hours.
“A huge thanks to all the sponsors of the #CFHNwebathon2021. Your support was crucial to make this event a real success,” said CFHN on Twitter following the event.
With your support, we were able to achieve our goal of raising $100K for our community, Halton North. 🥳

The webathon also included various interviews and videos that discussed the work of CFHN, local participating charities and sponsors as well as the importance of these efforts within the community.
