Fostering connected neighbourhoods and strong communities starts at home. As a top-quality builder, with properties in Brantford, Guelph, London and Waterloo Region, Sifton Properties invests where their staff and clients live, work and raise families. The Sifton Family Foundation, established in 1989 by Mowbray and Doris Sifton, has granted more than $3.3 million to community organizations to date.

With a specific focus on education and helping the next generation prepare for a successful future, our Letters, Sounds and WordsTM program was a perfect fit with their neighbourly philosophy. Honouring Brier Park Public School in Brantford, which serves their tenants in the Brier Park community, was a wonderful way to support their local residents.

Seeing first-hand what the Letters, Sounds and Words program, its volunteers, teachers and monetary grants are doing to make a profound impact on children is remarkable,” said Stephanie Pullam, Customer Experience Manager – Residential Rentals. “This program doesn’t just support literacy, it assists in building confidence in the lives of children. By moulding their young minds today, it will help to enhance their future of tomorrow.”

Sifton’s $20,000 gift is helping fund the existing program and its expansion in Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk. Our thanks to the foundation for being good neighbours and community builders.
