About Us

We're in every corner of the community

You may not yet be familiar with our name; but almost everywhere you look, you will see the impact of our work.

We are the RGC Fund - the operating name of the Rotary Club of Guelph Charitable Foundation. For decades we’ve quietly been raising and donating funds to support cornerstone community projects that make a wonderful difference to the quality of life for as many people as possible.

Whether these projects involve health care, the arts, education, international development, the young and the not-so-young, community history or rural development, the RGC Fund has been a quiet but vital partner in their development; a friend and support to those who would like to sustain the very best of life for all of us, in every corner of this wonderful community we all call home.

We invite you to learn more about us and to join with us as we look ahead to the next decades and to the projects that, working with your gifts and generosity, we can help to accomplish.

Our Mission – Trust and Quality of Life

While our Mission is simply stated, it translates into projects that are truly transformational for thousands of residents in Guelph and beyond.   And transformational is what your gift can become if you choose to donate to the RGC Fund!
