About the Foundation
At Rexall, we’re committed to improving the health of the communities we’re a part of. In addition to a variety of corporate giving and sponsorship initiatives, we created a charitable organization, the Rexall Foundation, in 2002, to increase the support we provide to the community.
The Rexall Foundation is dedicated to helping communities stay healthy and vibrant, with a focus on helping kids feel good. We’ve contributed to a number of great charities and causes, including the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Canadian Red Cross and we have also helped fund hospital initiatives right across the country.
Rexall’s family includes some of the most caring, dedicated and passionate people in Canada, and the Rexall Foundation is one of the ways we give back as a company. It’s a partnership between our corporate and store staff, our vendors and our customers. All of the money funds raised through our fundraising events and initiatives and through the coin boxes in our stores is carefully managed by the Rexall Foundation Board of Directors and directed to reputable and worthy causes throughout the country.
Our team does more than raise money. Thanks to the commitment and enthusiasm of our staff, we’ve also been able to lend our time directly to help make a difference. Whether it’s volunteering their time to help clean-up and prepare camps for kids with cancer or helping to run fundraising events, members of the Rexall team can often be found lending their support to worthwhile causes in their communities.
We’re especially proud of the work we’ve done to help some of Canada’s most courageous children through our Helping Kids program including sending more than 100 children with a life-limiting illness to camp.
Making dreams come true
In 2012, Rexall Foundation proudly donated $40,000 to the Children’s Wish Foundation, granting wishes to children in Saskatoon, Manitoba and Toronto.
