The Face of Poverty has Changed
The WoodGreen Foundation is the charitable arm of WoodGreen Community Services.
The Foundation supports the vital work of WoodGreen Community Services by creating awareness and helping to inspire philanthropic support to enable WoodGreen to create new paths to opportunity for some of the most vulnerable members of community.
The Foundation provides an opportunity for donors to become meaningfully engaged in WoodGreen’s work ― enhancing self-sufficiency, promoting well-being and reducing poverty through innovative solutions to critical social needs. ― and to see the impact of their support in the community.
We are grateful for the compassion and generosity of our donors, which allows WoodGreen to tackle poverty and build a city where everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
WoodGreen has a plan to tackle poverty. The WoodGreen Foundation is launching a $20 million poverty reduction campaign. It will address all the inter-related facets of poverty including: housing, living expenses, skills training, stable employment, and the mental and physical health and well-being of the most vulnerable people in our city.
Our campaign will improve access, expand and enhance vital programs, and inspire innovation to effect real, sustainable change.
With your help and WoodGreen’s front-line expertise, the Difference Makers Campaign will create a more equitable city, where everyone has an opportunity to thrive and fulfil their potential.
This time it’s different. The difference is changing the very fabric, health and well-being of our city.
