2022 Gift Card Program Returns...

April 2022

School Administrators & Parish Leads:

The CCFOWR values community and has a responsibility to offer a "hand up", empowering the life journey of the marginalized and vulnerable within the Region of Waterloo, with a focus on youth. We believe in inclusion and equity and alignment with the 7 Social Teachings of the Catholic Church. We are committed to cooperating and collaborating with community partners in all sectors to support and evolve common goals.

In 2022, the organization will again address the unique community needs created by the pandemic over the past two years, responding with a just-in-time support program for our families, schools and parishes:

  • A Food Card Program supporting families in our schools and parishes, launching on April 25, 2022
  • The Annual Grants Program, offered in October 2022, supporting school, parish and community partner projects,
  • $100,000 Annual Scholarships/Bursaries/Awards, offered throughout 2022
  • Continuation of our Speaker Series to support families and schools in our community. In 2022, this series will be offered in collaboration with our education partner, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.

Food Card Program: School principals and parish leads should simply forward a request with a brief rationale for their families in need. Requests for consideration should be directed to Vic Degutis, President, email: VicDegutis@outlook.com or John Klein, CCFOWR Grants Committee Chair, email: john.klein@wcdsb.ca.

Annual Grants Program: Will be launched in October 2022. The application process will be simple and online for your convenience. The submission deadline will be in November 2022 and the status of the application will be communicated to applicants in December 2022.

If additional information is required, don't hesitate to contact me or the Grants Committee Chair: John Klein (email: john.klein@wcdsb.ca).
