A trust fund to support the Sudbury Manitoulin Children Foundation’s “Send-A-Kid To Camp” program was established in 2008 in honour of Taylor Ferguson, a young man who loved the outdoors…

“Taylor was a very social fun-loving, outgoing young man who absolutely loved to fish, camp, play baseball, snowboard and be outdoors. He died in a boating accident while on a weekend camping trip with friends a very short time after his 20th birthday. He had recently graduated from the electrical program at Cambrian College and had just been hired in a job to work toward his apprenticeship. He and his brother had disagreements and one of Taylor’s favorite saying was “Stop it Lyndon”. Taylor had a wonderful girlfriend that he loved dearly. The Taylor Ferguson Memorial Fund was created with the hope of other children being able to enjoy Taylor’s passion in his Memory. He will live forever in the hearts of everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. At the end of the 2014 fiscal year, Taylor’s Trust Fund was sending three children to summer camp every year. Your continued ongoing support is making a difference for the kids in our community!

This picture of Taylor was taken the afternoon that he passed away. He apparently had caught the most fish!”

A warm thank you to the Sudbury Airport for dedicating the proceeds from the “Change for Charity” box to the Taylor Ferguson Memorial Send a Kid to Camp program from January through June 2015. This fund supports the Sudbury Manitoulin Children Foundation’s “Send-A-Kid To Camp” program.


The Sudbury Manitoulin Children’s Foundation 7th Annual Charity Chair Auction was a great success.  July 2015 marked the 7th anniversary of Taylor’s Angel Day, and to commemorate him Peg Ferguson joined forces with us.  Chair #20 was sponsored for Taylor.  All donations received, as well as the proceeds from chair went to the Taylor’s Memorial Fund.  “Our “living testimony” to Taylor is now sending 3 local disadvantaged children to summer camp every year and I’m certain he would be very proud and thankful for the support received”. A warm thank you to Peg Ferguson and to her family and friends who participated.
