About Grandview Children’s Foundation

Grandview Children’s Foundation is dedicated to helping kids with disabilities from throughout Durham Region to achieve their personal best.

Grandview Children’s Foundation was established in 1995 to work with the community to raise funds in support of Grandview Children’s Centre.
Through the generosity of our donors Grandview Children’s Foundation helps kids achieve their personal best. Often it’s through the gifts of our community that Grandview Kids take their first steps, say their first words, achieve firsts of many kinds.

In addition to working to support the programs and services through our annual giving program, Grandview Children’s Foundation has recently launched at $10 million capital campaign, You Have to Believe It to See it, in support of a new Grandview Children’s Centre headquarters.
