Philosophy of the Grateful Heart Foundation

My vision is to contribute equally to humankind and ‘animalkind’ through The Grateful Heart Foundation. Every year, 50% of available funds will be allocated to registered charities dedicated to enhancing the lives of elderly Canadians; the remaining 50% will go to registered charities dedicated to animal welfare.

My lifetime goal is to raise donations of $3,350,000 (1% of The Calgary Foundation’s 2007 asset base) or more. Ambitious, yes; but changing the world calls for much more than a 'play it safe' approach.

To have the greatest possible impact on recipients, all contributions to The Grateful Heart Foundation will go to hands-on, grassroots care (at an annual administration cost of just 1.25%).

In addition to financial contributions, The Foundation will help raise community awareness about much needed services related to the fulfillment of its vision.
