  • The J. W. McConnell Family Foundation

    Established in 1937 by John Wilson McConnell (1877-1963), The J.W. McConnell Foundation grew out of Mr. McConnell’s deep commitment to the public good and his lifelong involvement with charitable work in Canada.

    Renamed The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation following his death, the core purpose of the Foundation has remained constant since its founding: to improve the quality of life in Canada by building communities that help people develop their potential and contribute to the common good. Over the years, our approach to this work has evolved; for the past two decades the Foundation has maintained a national focus, and many of its programs operate country-wide.

    The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation remains a private family foundation: the Board of Trustees is comprised of family members who set policy and assure the Foundation’s good governance. The Foundation has a small staff based in Montreal.
