Supporting Health and Research for the Well-being of the Community
Since 2017, the Guzzo family awards students The Guzzo Family Scholar Bursary. Parts of this merit-based scholarship is given to graduating high-school level students who demonstrate a successful academic year despite adversity that may include financial struggles, personal tragedies or just unfortunate circumstances that interfere with their educational goals. To date, over 5,000$ has been awarded to students who wished to pursue their studies at the college level.
The Guzzo Family Athletic Bursary is also awarded to support young athletes across the Montreal community, as participation in sports helps build self-esteem and confidence and can motivate children to excel academically while helping build social skills. The Guzzo family believes that every child with a desire and passion for sports should be part of a team with great mentorship, regardless of their limited finances. To date, two athletes at the national level have benefited from this award and are moving on to compete at the international level.
