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 and Fountain Street Finance. Together they provide insurance, wealth management and risk management products and services for individuals, businesses, organizations and public entities as well as assist employers with their group benefits, retirement and health and disability management plans. 

The goal of The Cowan Foundation is to make a positive difference in the lives of Canadians and 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 of innovation, commitment, collaboration, integrity, client-focus and being results-driven.  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.
