The Charities

The David Foster Foundation

The David Foster Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing financial support to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. In addition to helping families with their non-medical expenses, the Foundation strives to increase public awareness about the importance of becoming a registered organ donor in Canada and the United States. In 1986, 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster, established The David Foster Foundation and in 2006, the Foundation became a national organization, expanding to help families across Canada.

When a child requires a transplant, there are many additional non-medical expenses that can create a significant and unexpected burden for families. Often families have to temporarily relocate to another city or province for their medical treatments. Months or even years of medical support is often required for children waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Through the David Foster Foundation, Canadian families receive financial support during the entire life-saving organ transplant process. From the initial transplant, through to the postoperative care and annual checkups.
