Guelph Community Foundation


The Portage drug addiction rehabilitation centre in Elora, Ontario is part of a wonderful community in Wellington County that supports the youth in treatment.

The Portage Ontario Foundation has been working to strengthen partnerships with individual, foundation, and corporate community leaders, which have translated into financial contributions to support the work being done at Portage Elora.

A dear friend to Portage Ontario since 2012, The Guelph Community Foundation is one such caring community foundation that assists charities located in Guelph and surrounding areas. Chris Willard, Executive Director of the Foundation, along with his small but mighty team have not only provided financial assistance to Portage, but have also helped open doors to other individual and corporate donors wishing to make a philanthropic gift to support the needs of the youth in treatment. Most recently, the Foundation helped to facilitate a $10,000 donation that will be used to purchase kayaks for Portage Ontario’s Outward Bound Program.

On behalf of Portage Ontario and the community of youth at Portage, thank you to everyone at The Guelph Community Foundation for your friendship!
