Willibald Community Fund
Willibald is a first generation farm distillery and brewery. The farm element of who we are is something we are undeniably proud of and it holds particular importance to us for a variety of reasons. Of those, community is the one that is a clear standout. Anyone who has grown up in an agricultural locale understands how integral the community is to surviving in addition to thriving. We want to take the community spirit (no pun intended) we were raised on and use it to make a difference. We want to do this not only in our physical community within the village of Ayr, North Dumfries or Waterloo Region but in the communities outside of our backyard that we belong to or that require our support. These instilled rural values along with the need we see in our community are why we’ve decided to create the Willibald Community Fund.
The Willibald Community Fund is part of our long-term commitment to supporting a community that has helped us work towards our mission. Throughout the year we will pick organizations, foundations and causes that are important to us and our community and contribute to them by fundraising, donating time and funds as well as utilizing our platform to promote their causes and build awareness. Our hope is that we can use our brand for more than just brewing and distilling. We hope to use it to cultivate change not just in our fields but those of our neighbours as well. But we feel confident we can. After all: farming is a profession of hope.
The organization we are currently focusing our efforts on is KidSport™ Kitchener Waterloo So ALL Kids Can Play!
KidSport™ is a Registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Association that “provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.“ There are Chapters in 180 communities across Canada.
KidSport™ KW provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids and youth aged 18 and under in Kitchener Waterloo. Through a confidential application process we provide grants so they can dance or play the sport of their choice.
