Mohamad Fakih, President of Paramount Fine Foods and Founder of the Fakih Foundation, has launched a campaign to collect funds for the victims of Flight 752.
Moved by this tragedy and wanting to pay tribute to the lives lost, many Canadians have been learning the names of the victims and reading their personal stories.
The families of the victims from across Canada will face a number of expenses. We are encouraging Canadians to support the families of the victims by making a donation. With pro bono oversight from Dentons Canada LLP and support from the City of Toronto, all donations will flow-through Toronto Foundation to benefit those affected.
On Wednesday, January 22, the Government of Canada announced that it is matching funds donated to the Canada Strong fund. The government’s pledge is to match donations to the fund up to $1.5 million, with the intention of providing longer term support for the families of the victims. The contribution is in addition to the $25,000 that will go to each family to cover immediate funeral and travel expenses. Matching of donations from the Federal Government ends on February 21, 2020.
This is a time for all Canadians regardless of race or religion, to come together and show the world what it means to be Canadian.
Canadian Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $25 or more. For any issues with the donation form, or questions about tax receipting, please contact our processing partner, CanadaHelps via phone (416-628-6948) or email (email@example.com).
