Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington

At JamSchool, we believe that all children should have the opportunity to play. That’s why we support the Kids Can Grow program from the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington.

Here’s how the program makes a difference in our community:

  • Provides financial support for the activity of the child’s choice.
  • Encourages children to try new experiences and become active.
  • Allows children to continue in the activities they love even when times are tough for their family.
  • Helps kids to learn valuable life and social skills, develop friendships and engage in their community.
  • Partners with local organizations and companies who want to help the children within the community.

In 2018:

  • 1,384 children were funded to participate in 2,215 activities;
  • 279 music, drama, art activities were funded;
  • 508 camp outings were enjoyed;
  • The most popular activities are camps, swimming, soccer, gymnastics, and dance;
  • The average household income of applicants was $18,125.
