The R. Howard Webster Foundation continues to make grants to a wide array of organizations across the social services spectrum…
Central to the R. Howard Webster Foundation’s mission is its willingness to support organizations whose work is focused on the advancement of Canadian society. Since its inception, the Foundation has supported large capital campaigns, and made scores of small, but significant, gifts to institutions out working in the street, among troubled youth, the homeless or families down on their luck.
Honouring the vision of its founder, R. Howard Webster, the Foundation continues to make grants to a wide array of organizations across the social services spectrum whose projects and programs strive to help those struggling in today’s society, or which inspire the population as a whole to become more involved in community affairs and make healthier lifestyle choices.
The Foundation’s grant-making activities in the social services field centre on the following areas:
- mental health
- food security
- ending homelessness
- supporting vulnerable members of the population such as Canadian veterans, at-risk youth, seniors, victims of violence and sex-trafficking, people with physical and intellectual disabilities, and many more
- promoting community engagement
- improving access to sports and recreation
