How we Help
The Guelph Wish Fund for Children supports children in our community in 3 ways. Most importantly, we provide ‘wishes’ to children under the age of 19 and their families, residing in Guelph or Wellington County, who have life-changing illnesses, severe handicaps, or who have been critically injured. A wish can be creating a memory of a special family vacation or attending a sporting event or meeting a famous hero. Or it can be attending to the physical needs of the child with help towards the purchase of specialized equipment.
When the need and ability arise, the Guelph Wish Fund for Children may also provide financial contributions to other local charities that clearly support our mandate. We also support local scholarships to deserving high school graduates.
