Why we do it

Brooke's trip to Disneyland

  • "We are grateful for the generous support of the Bras Family Foundation and their dedication to improving the lives of cancer patients. With more than 26,000 Canadians being diagnosed with breast cancer this year, we are all hoping for a world where breast cancer doesn’t exist. But right now, with the support of the Bras Family Foundation, we help breast cancer patients with the short-term financial assistance they need to focus on getting well. Together, we support a very vulnerable group of women.”

    Donna SheehanFounder | Breast Cancer Survivor | The Breast Cancer Support Fund
  • "The Redwood...for women and children fleeing abuse, is deeply grateful to The Bras Family Foundation for their support of Women on the Move. This year-long leadership program for women who have experienced violence assists them to recover from the trauma of domestic violence, and to rebuild safe, meaningful lives for themselves and their children. Maggie Bras, board chair of The Bras Family Foundation has not only been a generous donor to the Women on the Move since 2007, she has also been an encouraging and empathetic friend. Thank you!!! The Redwood loves you!!!"

    Abi AjiboladeExecutive Director The Redwood | A safe haven for women
  • "Thank you for all your support over the past three years, it has helped Make-A-Wish Canada to continue to grant wishes and create magic for kids living with life-threatening illnesses. Huge thank you to you, and the whole Board at The Bras Family Foundation, for your support."

    Tiffany MacDonald Regional Vice President | Make-A-Wish Canada
  • "The Bras Family Foundation were instrumental to our growth in the early development of our company. Without their support, we could not have had the financial stability to believe that others could join our cause, or that we could develop our network of donors and supporters. The Bras Family Foundation believed in the arts and they believed in us."
