Who do we support?

We strongly believe in the importance of providing funding and support to charities and institutions that are fighting for the advancement of causes which are dear to us.

Supporting health and research for the well-being of the community

The Guzzo Family is involved in various organizations that contribute to the well-being and quality of life of youth as well as our community members. By providing support for health research, by leading various awareness-raising campaigns and by putting into action concrete measures, the Guzzo family hopes to convey a new sense of hope to children and their families. 

Logical Letters

Developed by Marcy Scott with the unique minds of dyslexic students as the driving force, Logical Letters began namelessly. Over thirty-five years ago, Marcy began using traditional remediation programs when she was a teacher in a class for dyslexic students.

Various experts in the field helped her to learn the leading methods of the time for teaching reading and spelling to dyslexic individuals.

She was impressed with a system that focused on individual phonemes within words and offered a structural and spatial format to their arrangement. She was also feeling success with multi-sensory methods that focused on phonemic awareness.

Shriners Hospital for kids

The Guzzo family also financed the imaging unit at the Shriners Hospital for Children.

Jewish General Hospital

The Guzzo family generously financed the imaging unit in the Pavilion K's new emergency department, the new critical care wing in the Jewish General Hospital.

 

This unit features a high-tech radiology room and a tomography room. It was created to better accommodate patients from the emergency department and provides a more functional work environment for health professionals. This unit reduces test wait times for patients in the emergency department, thus shortening the radiology department's waiting list for patients from external clinics.

 

Before receiving the imaging unit, 60% of the available time at the radiology department was being used by the emergency department, resulting in a very long waiting list for patients from external clinics.
