Thanks to all our Sponsors, Volunteers and Participants!
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?

Community Care West Niagara has experienced the support and generosity of the Wise Guys. Our ability to carry out the work we do in West Niagara has been enhanced as a result. We and the community we serve are very grateful and congratulate the Wise Guys on their success over the past 20 years.
This letter is to acknowledge the tremendous accomplishments of the Wise Guys Charity for its 20 years of giving back to the communities throughout Niagara. We are especially grateful to the Wise Guys’ for their major gift commitment in support of the development of the new Walker Family Cancer Centre through the Niagara Health System’s It’s Our Time Campaign. Their support will assist the Niagara Health System in accomplishing its vision of bringing urgently needed healthcare programs, such as radiation treatment, closer to home for everyone in Niagara! Their on-going contributions to many charities are a reflection of their continued work as true community builders. Betty Lou, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the NHS Foundation please accept and convey our congratulations to all the Wise Guys (and Gals).
Niagara Region Public Health has been the beneficiary of the generosity of the Wise Guys Charity’s dedicated, caring volunteers and business partners regarding development of the Health Bus initiative. In particular Chuck Smith’s vision and energy were instrumental in providing support and encouragement for the initiation of outreach public health care service to vulnerable, marginalized individuals in Niagara. The Health Bus initiative has also enabled Niagara Region Public Health to maintain current and build new partnerships with numerous community organizations that serve this priority population. The Health Bus is but one example of how the Wise Guys Charity has responded to the needs of disadvantaged residents of the Niagara community. A number of Health Bus clients have cited how services provided on the bus assisted and supported them to make decisions toward a healthy lifestyle. NRPH wishes continued success for the Wise Guys Charity in pursuit of this benevolent mission.
