Who We Are
The Wise Guys Charity Fund began with a simple goal in mind: to improve the quality of life in the Niagara Region. We started out raising funds for the YMCA, but just couldn’t stop there. We realized that there were so many other organizations and individuals in Niagara who needed our support. Why not do as much good as possible? So, we changed our strategy. We started raising funds for as many worthy causes as we could, especially the ones that don’t get the kind of publicity they deserve.
We thought we were just helping out; we didn’t realize we were creating a legacy.
Over the years, we started providing financial assistance to as many organizations as possible. This led us on some incredible adventures, and allowed us to support some inspiring projects along the way. We’ve helped women’s shelters, mentorship programs, advocacy centres, and more fight for the causes they care so much about. We’ve received tremendous support from the community along the way, which is the most rewarding part – watching community form and care for its members.
Now, the Wise Guys Charity Fund has grown into a widely-recognized charity in the Niagara Region. We can’t give full credit to one specific individual, but we can be grateful for the efforts of the collective. Together, we accomplish so much more than we ever could alone. Together, we’ve created a new way to care for our home.
We believe in supporting Niagara with every resource we can spare. We believe in finding new resources when we don’t have any to spare. Are you ready to pitch in?

Each year, through the support of the Wise Guys Charity, more and more children from St. Catharines who face financial challenges are able to take part in sports, recreation and cultural activities. Childreen need these types of activities to grow and develop. We’re thankful to Wise Guys for their investment in the future of our community.
Red Roof Retreat provides programs for children and young adults with special needs in the Niagara Region. As a new charity, Wise Guys Charity readily saw the need for what we did, and were instrumental in helping us purchase a wheelchair accessible van and promote our work. Again this year, they were one of the first and most generous to help build an accessible playground. It’s such a honour to be backed by a group of people who work tirelessly to support us, so that we can in turn can help others. Saying “Thank you” never seems like enough, but we are deeply honoured to be recognized by the Wise Guys.
The Wise Guys Charity is a truly unique community partner. Their support over the years to grassroots organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters St. Catharines-Thorold has been vital to sustaining our Mentoring programs. Their support for our two new programs such as Big Bunch & Go Girls! enabled us to reach many more young people who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate. We are privileged they value and support the work we do with Niagara’s children. On behalf of everyone at Big Brothers Big Sisters our heartfelt congratulations on your twenty years of helping us to grow and thrive.
