The David Foster Foundation is 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 and education about the importance of becoming a registered organ donor in Canada and the United States.
The David Foster Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that for the past 37 years has assisted over 1,400 families with children in need of major organ transplants and provided much-needed dollars in direct family support. In 2006, the Foundation became a national organization, expanding to help families across Canada. The Foundation works in collaboration with the transplant teams at children’s hospitals across Canada to provide support to children under eighteen years of age, from the time they are listed for pediatric transplant and up to and including their post-operative checkups.
