We work with dozens of community organizations and businesses who we consider “partners.” We value ALL those who help to ignite our potential so that we can ignite the potential of our community’s children and youth. We are particularly grateful for our major, ongoing funders highlighted below.

A BIG thanks to United Way Elgin-Middlesex who has been with us since the very beginning. United Way is a major contributor to our community-based mentoring programs. Their funding enables us to deliver the gold standard in 1:1 mentoring to over 200 young people in our community and group mentoring to over 150 children and youth on our waitlist.

Another BIG thanks to the Ontario Ministry of Education who is the mainstay of our school-based mentoring programs. Their funding enables us to provide 1:1 and group mentoring to over 900 students (primarily elementary) in the Thames Valley region.

Through a City of London Multi-Year Community Grant (2024-2027), we are excited to maintain our commitment to serving young immigrants and newcomers to London. Annual funding in the amount of $40,000 will support the Newcomer 1:1 Mentoring Project which focuses on matching newcomer children, youth, and mothers with supportive mentoring relationships that meet their unique cultural needs.

Thank you to RBC Future Launch for their generous multi-year contribution, which has enabled us to launch our Post-Secondary and Career Readiness Program for mentees nearing high school graduation. It is an honour to be working alongside RBC who believes in “empowering the youth of today, for the jobs of tomorrow.”

Thank you to Scotiabank for their five-year donation (2019-2024) to build our capacity and accelerate our signature 1:1 mentoring program through several exciting and innovative initiatives. Just like us, Scotiabank is “committed to helping young people reach their infinite potential.”

Thank you to all of the following at the London Community Foundation:

  • the Megan Holliday Memorial Fund
  • the Bourne Family Fund
  • the Barbara and John Cronyn Fund

We are sincerely grateful to the Miggsie Fund for their generous three-commitment to our core 1:1 mentoring program. With their support, we will be able to achieve our goal to double the number of children we match by 2025!

Returning for a fifth year as the Presenting Sponsor of our annual Big Bash, Harrison Pensa Lawyers has been a committed partner, believing, as we do, that mentoring is one of the most effective ways to support the development of young people. Harrison Pensa believes that strong communities are built on inclusion, influence, and leadership – three values that are important to a healthy mentoring relationship and upon which the practice at Harrison Pensa is founded. We are so grateful for this continued partnership in support of youth in our community!

Thank you to Cenovus Energy for their support through the BIG on STEM initiative! BIG on STEM will help over 20 youth in London and the Area explore and better understand STEM careers and post-secondary options by intentionally connecting them with professionals in the field.
