The Peter Gilgan Foundation is proud of our legacy of supporting institutions working in the areas of health care, higher education and healthy and active lifestyles. Many of these institutions have made, and will continue to make, a significant and positive impact in the communities they serve.
In March of 2016, the Peter Gilgan Foundation officially rolled out a new set of funding guidelines reflective of the Board of Directors’ evolving priorities.
We are now focused on supporting registered charities that improve life opportunities for children and families, as well as those that advance market-based solutions for global humanitarian and environmental concerns.
The revised guidelines were arrived upon after an extensive internal review process and are designed to guide decision making for the next few years. For more detailed information, please see our funding guidelines and mission and principles.
