Tomlinson Family Foundation Announces Selected Charity – The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa

Ottawa, ON – Over the last few months the Tomlinson Family Foundation, under the leadership of its President, Cindy Tomlinson, has undertaken a selection process to choose a charity to support. The Board conducted in depth analysis and discussions of many deserving organizations and is now in the position to announce it will donate $1M to The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa (BGCO).

“We are delighted to support this organization,” explains Cindy Tomlinson, President of the Tomlinson Family Foundation. “This was a significant decision for the Foundation and one which we know will make a big difference in our city. The Boys and Girls Club undertakes crucial work amongst the youth in Ottawa and we’re proud to be part of that.”

The BGCO has served the Ottawa community since 1923, reaching out to 4,500 children and youth each year through after-school, weekend and summer programs that build self-esteem and help to develop stronger social skills.

The Tomlinson Family Foundation aims to contribute towards and support local communities, and foster charitable works that build and strengthen these communities. The Foundation will leverage the company’s tradition of charitable giving by encouraging participation from employees, suppliers, service providers and other organizations and individuals with whom we work. The goal of the Foundation is to support a wide range of organizations in an effort to serve the needs of our community.

The Tomlinson Family Foundation is proud to announce it will be hosting its second annual Tomlinson Family Foundation Charity Slo-Pitch Tournament on Saturday, September 16th. The tournament is open to all Tomlinson and affiliated companies’ employees and proceeds from the tournament will support the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa.
