David Foster Foundation
AMJ Campbell is a proud sponsor of the David Foster Foundation, which financially supports families for all non-medical expenses while their children are undergoing live-saving organ transplants.
AMJ Campbell has added decals to many of their trucks across the country with the David Foster Foundation’s “Be a donor, save a life” tagline, helping to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation and the work of the foundation.
Since 1986, the David Foster Foundation has assisted more than 850 Canadian families with children in need of major organ transplants and provided millions of dollars in direct family support. Despite these efforts, 346 Canadians died in 2012 while waiting for a donor organ. There are 4,529 people are on the waiting list for an organ transplant. At the annual fundraising gala in Toronto, ON in December 2013, David Foster announced that the Foundation would set in motion a campaign to raise $30M by their 30th anniversary in 2017. Currently, the Foundation raises an average of $3 to 5M annually through major gifts and annual giving.
