The Toronto based W.C. Kitchen Family Foundation was established in 1988 through the generous endowments of Bill and Jean Kitchen. The Board of Directors is comprised of family members who set granting policy and assure good fiscal and administrative governance. The Foundation has quietly supported a wide spectrum of charitable organizations over the years. However the Foundation has recently decided to take a more focus approach to granting that continues to reflect the Kitchen family’s values and interests. Primary emphasis will be placed on supporting initiatives for youth in an ‘at risk’ environment within the Greater Toronto Area and a secondary emphasis on the conservation of natural resources in Ontario and British Columbia.
