Fidus is proud to support and give back to non-profit charitable organizations within our communities. At the beginning of 2020 we asked our employees to let us know which charities are near and dear to their hearts. Our employees were happy to participate; the choice charities were put into a monthly draw for a $1,000 donation. Fidus cares deeply about our communities and staff and this was a great way of connecting the two.
In May and June, we made the following donations:
- May 2020 $1,000 Charitable Donation: Make a Wish Canada
Make-A-Wish Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 500,000 children since 1980. Their mission is to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to endure their treatments and build resilience.
- June 2020 $1,000 Charitable Donation: Canadian Celiac Association
The Canadian Celiac Association serves through affiliated chapters across Canada. It provides a singular, reliable resource of information not only for Canadians living gluten free, but for their families and health care providers. With increased research incentives powered by their donors, community networking, and mutual support, CCA helps people with celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity and dermatitis herpetiformis regain power over their disease, their bodies, and their lives.
Fidus is thrilled to continue this effort and will be donating to local charitable organizations every month. See our previous donations here.
