AC Foundation Raised Over $1M For Canadian Children’s Charities

The Air Canada Foundation's 5th annual golf tournament netted over $1,000,000 in support of organizations focused on the health and well-being of children in Canada. The tournament featured more than 300 golfers from across North America and was supported by more than 100 North American and international corporations and organizations.

"We thank Air Canada's generous partners and friends for ensuring the outstanding success of (this) event," said Priscille LeBlanc, Chair of the Air Canada Foundation. "We also thank the team of Air Canada employee volunteers who worked tirelessly to facilitate the sell-out event. For a 3rd consecutive year the Air Canada Foundation Golf Tournament has raised over a million dollars and I thank our loyal sponsors, participants and volunteers for their on-going generosity and support."

To mark the 5th annual tournament and over 2 decades of partnership with the Children's Miracle Network, the Air Canada Foundation made a significant donation of $700,000. This grant will enable each of the 14 Canadian pediatric hospitals within the network to address its own most urgent needs.  

As a registered not-for-profit organization, the Air Canada Foundation's mission is to grant children's wishes, alleviate child poverty and help connect sick children to the medical care they need. For more info, visit their site: www.aircanada.com/foundation.
