The mission of the Flemming Charitable Foundation is to provide relief, through donations, for children, women, men and families who are in need by virtue of their being poor, handicapped or disadvantaged, on a local basis.
The Flemming Charitable Foundation was created in 1999. After establishing a successful construction business, Ocean Contractors Limited, Jack and Marion Flemming had the desire to “give back” to their community.
Jack and Marion’s sense of caring and genuine concern for others has provided the base for the mission of the Foundation, to assist the less fortunate on a local basis. This spirit of care has been cultivated in the next generation. The board membership includes Jack, Marion, and their four children, Karen, Colleen, John, and Scott. Annually, The Flemming Charitable Foundation supports over twenty organizations in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
