The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington is a local organization helping local families. Positive and rewarding experiences during key developmental years in childhood and adolescence can shape a child's future and help break cycles of hardship. Together with our donors, volunteers and community partners we find opportunities in the hard times so that we can help each child grow, explore and unleash their great potential. We invest in children today through our four programs: Adopt-A-Family, Food & Friends, Free to Grow (formerly Free to Play) and Scholarships to build brighter futures tomorrow.
Adopt-A-Family matches donors with families in need in order to make Christmas shine a little brighter.
Food and Friends student nutrition programs maximize students' potential to learn by providing healthy food in a safe, convenient environment.
Free to Grow Program provides families with financial support for recreational activities such as sports, art based lessons and camp.
Scholarships helps youth take the next step in their educational journey.
