Each year, the CC&L Foundation supports numerous not-for-profit organizations across Canada in support of:

  • promoting a better environment;
  • improving education;
  • advancing science and medicine;
  • creating stronger communities; and
  • encouraging the arts.

In particular, it aims to support organizations in which our employees or partners have a personal connection and have made financial or time commitments.

CC&L Foundation commits $125,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta

In 2022, the CC&L Foundation committed $125,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta. The Ronald McDonald House supports families who need to travel while seeking vital medical treatment for their seriously sick or injured child. They provide a home-away-from-home when those families are experiencing one of life’s most difficult times. Each year, thousands of families will stay at one of the four Ronald McDonald houses in Alberta, and stays can last anywhere from a few nights to several months.

Currently, Ronald McDonald Houses are only able to serve 14% of those who need to travel for pediatric care within Alberta. This results in some families being turned away to make their own arrangements, sometimes resulting in keeping families away from their children. To expand capacity and assist in meeting the high demand, Ronald McDonald Houses are in the process of doubling their capacity in Edmonton and Calgary. The CC&L Foundation’s donation is contributing to these expansion projects.
