Paul and Bernadette Wainwright Family Foundation
Paul and Bernadette Wainwright
The late Paul Wainwright was a committed community builder. He was passionate about giving back and believed that, with a bit of help and support, everyone has the opportunity to thrive. His wife Bernadette, a retired social worker, shared this value. They both knew from experience that this belief could become a reality.
Bernadette and Paul started their family fund in 2011, feeling that London Community Foundation was uniquely positioned to help them make a meaningful impact and introduce them to local causes they otherwise wouldn’t have known about.
Now, the work they started lives on through their family fund and the yearly granting that’s led by Bernadette and daughter Kaitlin. The Paul and Bernadette Wainwright Family Foundation has granted to a number of charitable organizations including Anova, CMHA Middlesex, March of Dimes Canada and Mission Services of London.
