Supporting the GWSA

Volunteering

The Guelph Wellington Seniors Association owes much of its success to the hundreds of volunteers to keep the programs, activities, and special events operating smoothly.

The City of Guelph is not accepting new volunteer applications at this time and interested parties should review volunteer opportunities again in the new year. When opportunities again become available you can select Volunteer Information on our Contact page.

Donating

The GWSA is a registered not-for-profit charity which relies on the generousity of individuals, corporate partners, and services, to maintain a broad range of activities and programs. Donations can be made directly on line and a receipt is provided on donations of $25 or more for tax purposes. 

To discuss large gifts such as endowments or bequests, please contact select “GWSA Board of Directors” from the “Contact Us” page.  

Corporate Giving

The GWSA relies on support from community partners to maintain and enhance resources for our programs. We invite corporate sponsors who can assist with sustainable funding we can rely on from year to year. Sometimes, we have separate capital projects in planning stages that require a special infusion of funds for implementation.

Supporting the GWSA is a rewarding way to give back to the community.

If you wish to discuss a Corporate Donation, please select “GWSA Board of Directors” from the Contact Us page.  We’ll be in touch soon to consider possibilities and finalize arrangements.

If your organization wants to make a direct donation today you can do that here.

Leadership

If you have specialized leadership skills or experience on a not-for-profit Board, our Succession Planning Committee seeks seeking new members to join the Board of Directors. 

The Board of Directors also welcomes members who are not on the Board to participate in its standing committees.  

If you or a group have interest in an activity where you can share talent or leadership, we welcome the development of new clubs and activity groups that can involve other members.

For more information about leadership opportunities you may reach the Board of Directors from the Contact page.
