We proudly support causes and community initiatives in Ottawa and across Canada.

Our Community – Ottawa and beyond

Based in Ottawa since 1991, The Foundation is proud to support many charities, causes and initiatives in our nation’s capital and across Canada. A keen sense of corporate social responsibility is attached to everything we do.

Our team has been a fixture at countless golf tournaments, galas and other fundraising events. Meanwhile, we have embraced a leadership role in the philanthropic community. For the last two years, The Foundation has also been the Title Sponsor of the AFP Ottawa Philanthropy Awards, held in November each year, which honours individuals, groups and businesses that have given so much of themselves to make our community a better place.

The Foundation is also a sponsor and founding partner of the Ottawa Giving Guide, with the inaugural edition released in the fall of 2017. The annual guide is intended to unite our philanthropic community, offer fresh ideas and provide a voice to non-profits throughout the city. The initiative was so successful that we decided to introduce the publication to other markets. In 2018, we are the Title Sponsor of the first Vancouver Giving Guide, in collaboration with Business in Vancouver.

Our sense of community stretches from coast to coast. With colleagues, representatives and clients all across Canada, The Foundation is committed to charities, foundations and fundraisers that are making a difference in their communities. We strongly believe in supporting both our clients and the causes that are important to them.
