Who We Fund

Philanthropy is defined both as an act of giving and as a love of humankind. The Foundation is committed to improving the community in which we live and work by focusing on the four pillars of Health, Education, Italian Language and Culture and Social Causes.


Definition: a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

The Foundation supports the Health sector by distributing funds for the purchase of much needed equipment, construction of new medical facilities, and in the research of diseases. To support the Health sector is to facilitate the giving and receiving of health care services to maintain a healthy community.


Definition: The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.

At the Foundation, we believe that education is one of the key elements in building a strong community. The Foundation supports Education by providing funding to the Canadian-Italian Business and Professional Association’s bursary program as well as organizations that promote youth causes and educational institutions.

Italian Language and Culture

Definition: Italian culture is defined as design, architecture, art, food, cinema, fashion, literature, music and science emanating from Italy.

The Italian language, la lingua nostra, and culture are what unite us. Regardless of dialect or proficiency or how many generations removed, the Italian culture has a rich history that includes art, classic architecture, popular traditions, and customs. Through the sponsorship of cultural events, publications and exhibitions, the Foundation is ensuring a strong and vibrant community for years to come.

Social Causes

Definition: Social causes are matters that directly or indirectly affect a person or many members of a society and are considered to be problems, controversies related to moral values, or both.

Poverty, youth at risk, seniors, hunger, domestic violence, social adjustment – we are all touched by these issues and they make up an integral part of our communities. Contributing to the groups that provide the support services, the Foundation endeavours to improve the world around us, the world we live in.
