The Lawson Foundation is a Canadian family foundation that invests in and engages with ideas, people and organizations that contribute to the healthy development of children and youth.
We Grant. We Convene. We (Impact) Invest.
We provide grants to charities for activities including community action, knowledge mobilization, monitoring, leadership, public policy, knowledge development, capacity building, evaluation and learning.
We act as a convenor and connector to create bridges and conversations by bringing leaders and organizations together to share knowledge and learn from one another.

In addition to these primary areas of focus, we also support charitable initiatives through the following streams:

Strengthening philanthropy and supporting the charitable sector.
Honouring our roots by supporting community projects in and around London, Ontario.
