Helping Families Create a Tradition of Giving 


Giving as a family can be a highly rewarding experience that strengthens and deepens family values and relationships.  Family philanthropy can provide an opportunity for your children to learn - first-hand - about the joy of helping others and the importance of community building. Nurturing family traditions and passing stories from generation to generation are the keys to your family's true legacy.

Since 1984, The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation (KWCF) has supported families in their commitment to building a stronger community.

Donor Advised Funds provide a convenient, flexible way for your family to get involved in the community and with one another. This type of fund is typically less costly to administer than other forms of philanthropic giving (such as a private foundation), but it still allows you to establish a charitable legacy in your family's name, fulfill multiple charitable interests, and teach giving values to the next generation.

By working with The KWCF, you can choose to combine your gift with others to increase the impact in areas your family cares about most. Gifts typically qualify for maximum tax benefit, and you can take advantage of the expertise of our professional program staff and investment managers.
