As one of our earliest supporters, the Taylor Family Foundation has been instrumental to the growth and sustainability of the Rideau Hall Foundation (RHF) as an enduring legacy of the Right Honourable David Johnston, Canada’s 28th Governor General.
The Taylor family’s shared passion for encouraging pride in our country and celebrating Canadians who have displayed extraordinary leadership and achievement, is the hallmark of our partnership. Yours is a shining example of barn-raising that the RHF seeks to inspire in all.
Your support, including the establishment of the Johnston Fund for Canada, has made possible the acceleration of our work in learning, innovation, leadership and civic engagement, and widening the circle of giving, from coast-to-coast-to-coast. This microsite presents a time capsule for the progress and the achievements we have accomplished thanks to your extraordinary generosity and demonstrates the impact of your support on the lives of so many Canadians.
We are deeply grateful for your faith in and early support of the RHF. You are helping to build a smarter and more caring Canada. On behalf of thousands of Canadians who are benefitting from your trust and investment in our work, we thank you.
The Rideau Hall Foundation is an independent charitable organization that serves to mobilize ideas, people, and resources across the country to tap into our collective aspirations and help ignite our shared potential.Learn More
