KJH Cares

Through our KJH Cares program, we regularly commit time, talent and treasure to charitable organizations in the communities where we live, work and play

To make the greatest impact, we have identified fives areas of focus for our giving. Each year, we invite our clients to guide us by selecting themes that best resonate with their personal philanthropic interests:

Poverty & Homelessness

These charities work hard to alleviate poverty and homelessness by improving the lives of children and youth, supplying food and safe shelter to those in need, and essential supplies for the homeless.

Health & Fighting Disease

These charities make a difference to Canadians living with health and mental illness through medical research and rehabilitation programs. 

Family & Kids

These charities help families and children across Canada. By creating a “home away from home” for sick children, providing educational support and establishing programs and facilities for children living with physical or mental disabilities. 

Environment

These charities protect Canada’s plants and wildlife by establishing protected areas, sustaining our planet for generations to come.

Arts & Culture

Music, theatre and the arts reflect the essence of our culture and support the health and welfare of people in our communities. These charities celebrate and enable local artists to create art in all its forms.
