In 2023, the WECF will celebrate 40 Years of Inspiring Philanthropy. At the core of the Foundation’s outreach has been a rich history of charitable legacy giving through community initiatives and programs. In celebration of this history, the Foundation is developing collaboration opportunities with our local municipal partners and delivering community betterment legacy projects across our region, tied to one of Windsor & Essex County’s most cherished assets—our beautiful waterfront.

The WECF is making an investment in each municipality to support Waterfront Legacy Projects, and we are working with our partners in community to support a number of other projects throughout Windsor & Essex County in honour and celebration of our 40th anniversary.

We hope that you will join us in as we celebrate the legacy of giving that WECF has in your community and make a meaningful impact that will endure for years to come.

We will provide updates throughout the coming year about our plans and the projects that we are supporting. Sign up for our Newsletter to stay up to date with these exciting projects & more!
