Women 4 Change is a group of local women who came together with HCF in a mission to inspire and enable the women of Hamilton to become leaders in philanthropy, while improving the lives of women and girls in our community through collective giving. We are excited to announce that this Fall marks 10 years of Women 4 Change. In celebration of this W4C milestone, the W4C group will be hosting a breakfast event on November 22 at the Waterfront Centre. W4C contributors are encouraged to bring guests to this event.

Our special guest for the W4C 10 Year Celebration will be Paulette Senior, CEO and President, Canadian Women’s Foundation. Paulette has devoted her life and career to breaking down systemic barriers and building up diverse women and girls. Her personal experience immigrating to Canada from Jamaica as a young girl ignited her interest in social justice and helped make her the dynamic, grounded leader she is today.

ABACUS, a collaborative initiative of Hamilton Community Foundation and The Fairmont Foundation, is a 10-year commitment to increasing the likelihood that young people facing multiple barriers graduate high school and access post-secondary, by focusing on the pivotal middle-school years.

Two new granting calls will open March 1, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. and close May 2, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. for programs that run in the 2022-23 school year. They reflect a deeper understanding of student populations who face barriers and the transition periods into and out of middle school. You can read more about ABACUS Phase II: Equity, wellness, academic achievement here.

Watch a video of our March 10, 2022 information session for organizations to learn more about the programs and applying to them.
