What is Engage!KW?

Engage!KW is a seven-month philanthropic leadership program created by The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation (The KWCF). Through three-hour sessions (one per month) participants along with 30 of their peers take part in facilitated group discussions on a variety of topics, engage in self-reflection and learn more about working with non-profit organizations. Topics will include non-profit and charitable work, a 101 look at non-profit board governance as well as the principles of philanthropy and donations. In addition, you will learn about yourself and your values; both as a citizen and as a leader.
