DEDICATED TO THE COMMUNITY

The VON Oxford Community Corporation

We are a not-for-profit charitable organization that financially supports the programs and services offered by VON Oxford. VON Canada is in a sense its parent corporation and acts as the umbrella body.

As with any organization, VON Canada needs individuals to act on its behalf to carry out its objectives. These individuals are Community Corporation Directors. VON Oxford Community Corporation Directors are Oxford County residents from all walks of life who volunteer their time. The Directors play a vital role in supporting VON Oxford’s Fund Development team to support fundraising opportunities, create a positive donor experience and produce the most successful outcomes possible.

Charitable registration number: 119284776 RR 0001
