Jerry Taylor Foundation

Jerry Taylor was a much beloved businessman who was born, raised and educated in Ottawa. He was a very special person to all who new him, always humble, kind and generous regardless of his own status. Part of his life's philosophy and one he brought to the office, was "giving back to your community".

He always remembered his roots, was a proud partner and supporter of many causes and gave back to the city he was so proud to call his home. Organizations such as the Heart Institute, Cancer Research, Sandrine's Gift - an organ tissue and donor awareness campaign, children's amateur sports programs, to name just a few, were all beneficiaries of his generosity.

So many people called with stories of how Jerry touched their lives and wanted to know how they could honour this man they were proud to have known.

With this in mind, the Jerry Taylor Foundation was established as a Featured Fund under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of Ottawa. Your donations will honour a wonderful man and, at the same time, benefit numerous worthy, non-profit organizations.
