Harold E. Ballard Foundation
“As Toronto community supporters, we know how important it is to invest in projects that help marginalized youth. We are pleased to partner with the Children’s Aid Foundation’s education program and build a demonstration kitchen to teach students about healthy food choices, nutrition and cooking – critical life skills to help them transition into independent living.”

Tachane Foundation
“We know that young people in care who identify as indigenous face additional barriers to a successful future. Although many of these young people have a tremendous desire to reconnect with their language, culture and traditions, resources to do so are often difficult to access. The Tachane Foundation is proud to provide valuable support and resources to these children and youth through our support of the Children’s Aid Foundation “Back to the Land” Program, which has provided them with the opportunity to learn about their culture, develop traditional skills, make friends, and build confidence in a safe environment.”

HBC Foundation
“Childhood trauma is nearly universal amongst children and youth in the child welfare system and the challenges are endless for those who need support with mental health. HBC Foundation is committed to supporting the Children’s Aid Foundation’s mental health fund, ultimately improving the lives of our children and youth in care by creating access to mental health supports. We want to provide them with the chance to build the healthiest possible future.”

Joan & Richard Berndt
“For over 40 years, I have seen how critical this cause is through my volunteer involvement with the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto. What better legacy could my husband and I leave than a bequest that will give vulnerable kids confidence and help them succeed? We are delighted to support sports and enrichment activities for kids by remembering Children’s Aid Foundation in our will.”

Investors Group
“We take great pride at Investors Group in supporting Children’s Aid Foundation during the holidays, a particularly difficult time for so many children in foster care separated from their families. When our volunteer team arrives at the Holiday Season Celebration every year, they see first-hand the important impact we are having on kids in our community. We are so proud to sponsor the Holiday Season Celebration, giving our city’s foster children special holiday memories they can cherish forever.”

David Bradbeer
“Showing my support for Children’s Aid Foundation is very important to me – whether it’s fundraising for this worthy cause through the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon charity challenge or volunteering my time on the Holiday Season Celebration committee. I am so happy to be part of the community at Children’s Aid Foundation – a community that makes it known to our children and youth in care that we are there for them, no matter what.”
