our mission
The rennie foundation is committed to giving our time, mind, and means to advance organizations in finding solutions and impacting meaningful change to marginalized communities in which we work.
areas of support
With guidance from our people, the rennie foundation focuses its support within a few key areas. We seek to align with local non-profits committed to the following areas:
mental health
Nearly 55% of Canadians will seek mental wellness support this year
We support organizations committed to creating greater access to mental health resources for all members of the community. This is achieved through funding research and operating grants in both a community and medical setting.
housing
Diverse communities are necessary to support the most vulnerable
We support organizations that impact greater access to housing and services for marginalized members of the community. This is achieved through the combination of programming, social support, and funding resources.
Children
Education is a right of every member of the society
We support organizations that help reduce barriers to education for underserved populations in our community. This is achieved through programming within our inner-city elementary schools, capital grants, direct funding of masters and doctoral research, and scholarship/bursary programs.
rennie collective
