Woodbine Cares Foundation

Woodbine Entertainment is the largest racetrack operator in Canada. Operating like a not-for-profit corporation, without any owners or shareholders, our sole mandate is to sustain the horse racing industry in Ontario. Any profits made are re-invested into our core operations and other initiatives strategically intended to benefit and serve the industry and the tens of thousands of jobs it supports throughout the province.

And we genuinely care about community.

Through the Woodbine Cares Foundation our philanthropic arm Woodbine strives to be recognized as a caring and innovative corporate community builder, and so it follows that our mission is to build relationships and initiatives that contribute to healthy places to play, work, live, learn and grow.

Following three themes Vibrant and Connected Communities, For the Love of Horses and the Environment & Sustainability we work to fulfill that mission through various initiatives including, legacy donations to major community institutions; microgrants through our Community Investment Program; supporting employee engagement opportunities that focus on volunteering and giving; and programs and activities that lead to a greener future.

Over the last decade, Woodbine Entertainment has given over $10 million in financial and in-kind contributions and since 1997, Woodbine has earned the designation of being an Imagine Canada Caring Company, where a minimum of 1% of our pre-tax profits is invested in communities.
