Philanthropy and Community Services



Waddington's is committed to working within the community by contributing our time to charity fundraising events and appraisal clinics. We are honoured to work with countless museums, galleries, art organizations and fund raising events and contribute our time to over 20 events each year raising over $2,000,000 annually for the community.
