The Newmarket Children's Dream Foundation was founded in 2010 by Regional Councillor John Taylor, his wife Michelle Digulla, and a group of local business people who are passionate about providing children with opportunities to stay physically fit in an effort to improve their physical, mental and social wellbeing - and so we started a registered charity that is very simple, focused and fully supported through volunteers. The primary purpose of the Foundation is to build or significantly revitalize children's playgrounds within areas of our community that lack parkland, outdoor recreation areas, and where the residents have little or no capacity to raise funds themselves.
Now in its 7th year, the Annual Charity Golf Classic has funded more than a dozen projects, totalling more than $135,000. For a list of the more significant projects, please click on the "Projects" tab.
Our mission is to make a visible and lasting difference in the lives of children and youth in our community by funding initiatives that contribute to their physical, mental and social wellbeing.
