Through our KJH Cares program, the team at KJ Harrison Investors is committed to being active contributors of time, talent and treasure to a number of worthy charitable organizations.
In order to help us make the greatest impact with our KJH Cares giving program, we identified the following segments as areas of focus and invited our clients to select a theme based on the area that best resonated with their personal philanthropic interests:
Poverty & Homelessness
We are proud to support the following charities who are working hard to have a direct impact in alleviating poverty and homelessness by improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system, helping to supply food to those who need it, supporting services for families and individuals who need a safe and supporting emergency shelter, and providing essential supplies needed for the homeless.
Health & Fighting Disease
With so many of us impacted in some way by health related issues, we are very proud to support the following charities who are committed to improving the quality of life for Canadians affected by disease and health related issues. By focusing on research efforts designed to find cures and rehabilitation programs to support those living with health challenges, these charities continue to make a difference for many Canadians.
Family & Kids
We are proud to support the following charities who are committed to families and children across Canada. By creating a "home away from home" for sick children, providing educational support to Canada's at risk children, or establishing programs and facilities for children living with physical or mental disabilities, these charities are helping to make a difference in the lives of Canadian families and children.
We are proud to support the following environmental and conservation organizations who are committed to protecting the natural areas that sustain Canada's plants and wildlife, providing Canadians with protected areas of natural diversity not just for their intrinsic value but for the benefit of our children and grandchildren.
Arts & Culture
Music, theatre and the arts reflect the essence of our culture and support the health and welfare of people in our communities. For this reason, we are proud to support charities who celebrate and enable local artists to create art in all its forms. We also look to support charities who encourage participation in artistic pursuits to improve mental health and well-being.
