Message from John Baird

Message from Honourary Chair, the Honourable John Baird

"The Fund for a New Generation is a group of young professionals that proudly serves our community. Each year, this group of creative and energetic volunteers gives their time and effort in organizing the Ottawa Gala, one of the premier events of the year in the Nation's Capital. I became involved with this group because of their connection to the Ottawa-Carleton Learning Foundation's School Breakfast Program, the Gala's primary beneficiary. In my riding alone there are 19 schools that benefit from the program with last year's donation translating into over 40,000 breakfasts for children in need in our community.

I applaud the Fund for a New Generation for their efforts to improve the future of at-risk children in Ottawa and I look forward to working together in the future."

John Baird,

Honourary Chair, Fund for a New Generation,
Member of Parliament for Ottawa West-Nepean and
