A word from the Director of the foundation
After having worked in the world of philanthropy for over 20 years, I am honored to be managing the RONA Foundation. When I look back on all that the foundation has accomplished these past 25 years, I am inspired. I want us to challenge ourselves to help even more Canadians in the next 25 years so that the foundation can keep playing an active part in building stronger communities throughout the country.
