At the Olympia Charitable Foundation, we pride ourselves on helping those in our community, across Canada, and even the world. From small individually run grass roots causes in need of a boost to larger established organizations with a national footprint, we happily donate to an extensive range of Canadian Registered Charities. There are a number of causes that we are passionate about including; children's charities, animal shelters, medical research organizations, international aide organizations, wildlife foundations, and much much more. The list below highlights some of our most recent donation recipients and will provide you with information on their individual causes as well as a link to learn more about them. We hope you enjoy learning about them as much as we enjoyed helping them out.
