HBC Foundation Partners
The HBC Foundation is proud to support the following charitable partners:
|Canadian Olympic Committee
Since 2006, the HBC Foundation has supported Canadian athletes through the Canadian Olympic Foundation (COF). We’ve gone the distance, donating more than $40.3 million to COF for athlete development, training and coaching. Our Olympic Mittens have become an iconic staple during Canadian winters. Find them at thebay.com.
|Canadian Paralympic Committee
In tandem with our partnership with the COC, HBC Foundation has donated funds to the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) since 2006 to help athletes with disabilities get involved in sport and compete on the worldwide stage. We’ve raised more than $900,000 for the CPC and, ultimately, the athletes to compete at the Paralympic and Parapan American Games.
|Canadian Red Cross
HBC Foundation partners with the Canadian Red Cross in response to crisis situations, to help people whose survival, safety, security, well-being or human dignity is threatened. We’ve helped to raise more than $3.3 million through in-kind and cash donations and programs, such as our ‘Donate Your Hudson’s Bay Rewards Points’ program held in stores and online at www.hbcrewards.com
|Beauty Gives Back
Beauty Gives Back supports women with cancer through hands-on cosmetic workshops (Look Good Feel Better) and by creating forums for women to share experiences and support each other (FacingCancer.ca). The HBC Foundation has supported Beauty Gives Back for more than 20 years, raising more than $2.75 million for this cause. Our annual contribution helps fund workshops in 118 cancer care facilities and hospitals across Canada, and in 2014 alone, the HBC Foundation made it possible for 770 women to attend a workshop.
|The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) works to create awareness, achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. The HBC Foundation supports the BCRF through donations, corporate and store initiatives. We’ve provided more than $450,000 to fund clinical research and increase public awareness about this disease.
|Habitat for Humanity Canada
As Canada’s largest bed bath and kitchen store, Home Outfitters proudly supports Habitat Humanity Canada, which builds affordable housing and promotes homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. We’ve given more than $235,000 through corporate donations and fundraising programs in stores, including ‘Donate Your Hudson’s Bay Rewards Points’, art easel auctions and holiday gift wrapping.
