Hope for Our Kids Fund

“Every child matters!”

The Hope for Our Kids Fund is an essential support system for over 800 children in Bruce and Grey Counties who have been impacted by poverty. With the Covid-19 pandemic impacting low-income families, the need for our fund has become more important than ever before.
Our fund aims to provide basic necessities such as nutritious food, warm winter clothing and boots, safety equipment like gates, car seats, and cribs, and also summer camp experiences. We believe that every child deserves to have their basic needs met, and your support can help us achieve this.

By donating to the Hope for Our Kids Fund, you can make a direct and immediate impact on the life of a vulnerable child. Your contribution will provide them with the hope and chance they deserve for a better life.
We value your support and are incredibly grateful for it. The generosity of our community donors like you has enabled us to continue providing assistance to those who need it the most. Your support is crucial, and we hope to earn your trust and ongoing support.

Background Information on the Hope for Our Kids Fund

For many years the United Way of Bruce Grey partnered with Bruce Grey Child and Family Services (BGCFS), to provide funding to the BGCFS Foundation since its inception, and prior to that, to the Children’s Aid Societies serving both Bruce and Grey. Together, we helped the most vulnerable children and families in our region.  In 2017, we were thrilled to announce that our role in this existing partnership expanded to include important fundraising duties previously accomplished by the BGCFS Foundation.

With the dedicated commitment and generosity of our donors, the United Way is dedicated to providing essential and emergency support for vulnerable children and families in Bruce-Grey.  Our expanded role requires raising additional funds to specifically support the children in our community who are associated with BGCFS to provide access to emergency food, safety equipment, winter outerwear, summer camp fees, and other required supports when and where they are needed.
