Since 1985, we have supported over 250 projects with over $750,000 in funding.



The Jack and Barbara Hay Foundation was established in 1985 and reflects the dedication Jack and Barbara shared for the London and Area Community. The Foundation also exemplifies Jack's commitment to community service which he demonstrated as a distinguished member of the Kiwanis Club of Forest City London.

Our primary objective is to provide financial assistance to worthy humanitarian and civic projects which improve the quality of life for the citizens of London and the surrounding area. We are a private charitable foundation incorporated in the Province of Ontario. Grants are made only to registered charities with a focus on serving the local community.

The funding from the Hay Foundation allowed the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex to launch the Intergenerational Choir which is now in its third year of joining young and old together in song. This very special choir provides enjoyment to the choir members, the community, and those living with dementia. .
