Lillian Meighen and Don Wright


The Lillian Meighen and Don Wright Foundation is a private charitable foundation based in Toronto, Canada.

The Foundation is named after Lillian Meighen Wright, a philanthropist and the daughter of the Rt. Hon. Arthur Meighen, the 11th and 13th Prime Minister of Canada, and her husband Donald Wright, an accomplished musician and choral director. Lillian and Don Wright had a life-long love affair filled with music and good works. Don cherished Lillian, and considered her his partner in everything, including producing his radio shows, as well as his children! Now, with The Lillian Meighen and Don Wright Foundation, their wonderful legacy continues.


The Lillian Meighen and Don Wright Foundation supports Canadian charities that work to relieve suffering and enhance the quality of life of vulnerable people.

As the Foundation is a small charity, we in turn specialize in helping smaller Canadian charities where we can do the most good, with preference given to charities based in Ontario.
