International Women's Day
Each year, we host a panel event and luncheon to celebrate International Women's Day. At our 2020 event, we had the honour of presenting Susan Brown with a $3,500 donation from the RBC Foundation to the Canadian Federation of University Women Guelph. In 2021, we took our event online. We look forward to sharing the event recording soon, and celebrating the donation to the Guelph Wellington Women in Crisis in late March.

We are proud to have been the presenting sponsor for the annual Mask Off gala in support of the United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin for the past two years. In 2020, the event raised $51,422 for mental health agencies in Wellington County. There will not be a gala in 2021, rather a virtual campaign will be held asking people "How are you, really?". We are pleased to continue with our presenting sponsorship in 2021, with funds being directed to the Integrated Youth Services Network. We were honoured to be a part of this campaign, and shared information about the initiative at our Mental Health and Resiliency event in February 2021.
