About Our Charity
The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) helps make a lasting difference in our community.
The KWCF is a charity for charities. Although we don't provide charitable services, we do help community organizations make a difference by providing them with funds for new programs, capital needs, student awards and much more.
When you make a donation or gift to The KWCF, we invest that gift into a permanent endowment fund. Your original gift is not spent. It generates income that is then distributed through grants to support a wide range of charitable causes within our community. It is through these grants that we help you make that lasting difference.
