Honda Canada Foundation
We were created to lend a hand to registered non-profit charities that strive to make the lives of Canadians better.
A Better Tomorrow
$2M+ donated annually.
Every year we give over $2 million to a variety of causes across Canada to help create a brighter tomorrow for us all.
Helping at Home
6.5M+ Canadians helped.
Since 2005, we’ve impacted one in every six Canadians through initiatives ranging from education to environmentalism.
Enabling the Realization of Dreams
We support people and organizations that focus on our four pillars: Family, Environment, Engineering and Education. This allows us to make a positive contribution to Canadians everywhere.
Make-A-Wish® Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organization in the world. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® Canada has granted over 36,000 wishes across the country, over 1,000 last year alone. We help charities that support children and their families in times of need, and we help fund programs that create learning opportunities for families as a whole.
Partners & Recipients
We’re dedicated to helping those who strive to make our society better. Our relationship with charities is focused on programs that balance the most pressing needs of youth and education.
