CameronHelps, a charity that is firmly rooted in Mississauga, has been fortunate to receive local funding support for its initiatives.
In May, CameronHelps received $10,000 from the Wordham Family Fund at the Community Foundation of Mississauga, a registered charitable public foundation serving the people of Mississauga. The gift was presented to the charity for its continued work with youth mental health programs.
The Community Foundation of Mississauga (www.CFofM.org ) has been matching acts of caring with community needs since 2001. Working with donors and the broader community, the Foundation invests in building strong and resilient places to live, work and play. By providing effective and efficient endowment options for donors, the Foundation is creating a lasting legacy of community vitality.
The grant was provided through the generosity of Robert and Joanne Wordham and is the second award CameronHelps has received from the Wordham Fund and the Community Foundation of Mississauga.
“CameronHelps is extremely appreciative to receive this grant. It will help us to continue and expand our health and wellness programs in Peel schools which are making a very positive impact in the lives of our youth,” says the charity’s CEO David Harris.
The Community Foundation of Mississauga is one of over 190 community foundations in Canada. “We help donors, as community builders, formulate and realize their philanthropic goals. Our grants support everything from shelter, sustenance and care for those most in need, to recreation, the arts, and the environment,” says Eileen MacKenzie, Executive Director of the Foundation.
“Donors are driven by a desire to help organizations in the community and thanks to their generosity we are able to coordinate 80 distinct grants and provide support to 60 unique organizations,” Eileen says.
