About Our Foundation
Raising funds and awareness
The Hincks-Dellcrest Foundation is the active fund development arm of The Hincks-Dellcrest Centre. Established in 1998, the Foundation provides financial support beyond funding provided by government sources for core client services. With a focus on fundraising innovative service, research, and education activities, the Foundation funds many projects that go on to become government-supported programs once established.
Our Charitable Registration Number is 89449-2487-RR0001.
How our funds are used
The Foundation raises funds for a broad range of activities, including:
Services for children and families that support infants, children, youth, and their families with prevention, early intervention, and treatment services

Evaluation and research to examine the causes of children’s social and emotional problems while testing and evaluating new treatment methods
The Foundation raises private funding through foundation grants, corporate and individual donations, and bequest gifts. Each one of our supporters plays a key role in ensuring the success of the Foundation's work. We are grateful to all of our supporters for their generosity in helping children and families.
