Marc Clare, Executive Director

I grew up in Burlington and attended St. Raphael CES and Assumption CSS.

I am a husband, father, brother, son, dog owner, volunteer, soccer player & cyclist.

I was fortunate to be the first staff hired with the Halton Catholic Children’s Foundation in September 2014. Prior to that, I spent 22 years with the YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford in a variety of operational, management and fundraising roles.

I volunteer on the Board of Directors of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Golden Horseshoe Chapter.

I also very much enjoy being a member of the Knights of Columbus Council #15920 (Holy Rosary, Burlington).

In my role as Executive Director (HCCF), I have been truly humbled and honoured to serve members of our Halton Catholic community. Poverty remains a powerful factor in whether a student succeeds in school, so helping them to overcome financial barriers to education has been so gratifying.
