What is a Bright Future Builder?

The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington recognizes our donors as key to building brighter futures for local children and youth in need. Bright Future Builders is a distinctive group of philanthropic leaders who play a critical role in sustaining the Children’s Foundation mission to enrich the lives of children and youth in our community ensuring they have the opportunity to participate, learn, and grow to reach their full potential. 

Bright Future Builders are individual donors who are giving personally with an annual donation of $1,500 or more either through one gift or multiple gifts (including monthly donations).

The Bright Future Builders giving program allows us to celebrate those donors who are committed to helping children and youth by providing consistent and generous annual gifts that sustain and grow our programs.
