Event Navigation

For many years, the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation’s mission has been to “create caring communities where everyone thrives”.  They have accomplished this by contributing time, leadership and financial support to local initiatives.  As one such local initiative, the France-Anne Sweeny “Making a Difference” Awards have been giving back to the Students and Charities in our community for 10 years.


These awards began as way to remember the loving, giving spirit of our beautiful daughter France-Anne and to celebrate that spirit in other young people in our community.  The Grade 11 Awards and Graduate Awards are part of a two-tiered program available in all secondary schools within the Catholic and Public boards of Waterloo Region.  These awards recognize students who have made and continue to make a difference in their schools and their communities. The Grade 11 Award, presented to a grade 11 student, is the first part of this process. Each high school, through an application process, selects one grade 11 Award winner who will have $100 donated to a charity of their choice.  Award recipients will then be eligible to apply for one of ten, $1000 Graduate Award Post-Secondary Scholarships in their graduating year. Only recipients of the Grade 11 Award will be eligible to apply for the Graduate Award. These awards are funded through the France Anne Sweeny “Making a Difference” Endowment Fund through the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation.


The France-Anne Sweeny Charity Golf Day is our premier fundraising event for this Fund. For the past ten years, the tireless work of our event team and volunteers and the amazing generosity of our sponsors have helped to make these events spectacular for our guests.


This year we are celebrating our Eleventh Annual Charity Golf Day on Monday June 15th and we are inviting you to be a part of this special day!   Corporate Sponsorship opportunities are available on a number of levels:  Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Hole Sponsors as outlined on our Charity Golf Day Website http://www.franceannegolf.com/ .  In addition, we are seeking assistance in collecting prize donations for our prize tables and silent auction.
