Mississauga Fund for Newcomers Announced.

The Community Foundation of Mississauga marked its 20th Anniversary with the launch of the Mississauga Fund for  Newcomers. This new fund comes in response to insights from the 2021 Vital Signs report.

“Our 2021 Vital Signs report highlights a pressing need to provide more supports for newcomers to Mississauga. With ongoing conflicts globally, we expect this need to become even more acute in the coming years” said Glenn Gumulka, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Mississauga.

We would like to say thank you for the new funds that have already been set up in support of the Mississauga Fund for Newcomers:

  • Giolitti Gumulka Family Fund for Newcomers
  • Lorraine Crow and James Giles Family Fund
  • Seibel Family Fund
  • Teklits-Zacharias Newcomer Fund

Thank you to the corporations that have also supported this important new fund:
