We'd Love To Introduce Ourselves!
All of the products featured in our programs are fully licensed and made in Canada. Our two manufacturers are located in Ontario, both family-run and owned. We work hand in hand with Frameworth Sports Marketing in Toronto, and Art East in London.
We proudly give a minimum of 70% of the net proceeds to our charities.
Since then, we have outgrown our office space twice, nearly tripled our staff and grown our list of charity and corporate partners to over 135 in total! Since our inception we have donated over 80% of our net proceeds to our charities and we have raised over $10 MILLION for Canadian charities from coast to coast, and we keep going!
Mission, Vision, & Values
Funding Innovation was founded on January 15th, 2015 as a result of the philanthropic spirit of it’s founding partners- Ron Gardner, Peter Beresford, Darryl Budd and Chris Carter.
