About Us

The Cowan Foundation was created in 1995 in honour of Frank Cowan, our founder.

The Foundation is sustained by the ongoing success of the Princeton Holdings group of companies including Cowan Insurance Group Ltd., Cowan Benefits Ltd., and Fountain Street Finance Inc.

For over 25 years, the goal of The Cowan Foundation is to make a positive difference in the lives of Canadians and enhance the broader well-being of our communities.

It's not just a donation, it’s an investment back in our communities

The Foundation’s focus on community investment aligns with our corporate values:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Client-focused
  • Collaboration
  • Accountable

At all times we recognize the importance of building and maintaining strong Companies that collaborate with business partners and clients – and through delivery of results, allows us to invest back in communities where we live and work.

Note:  The Cowan Foundation does not accept solicitations for funding.  We are proactively working with our businesses and community partners to allocate donations that align with the goals of our Foundation.
