Who We Are
The Mackenzie Investments Charitable Foundation coordinates our charitable and volunteer activities. The Foundation supports charities with a special focus on children and youth with health issues, kids at risk and social support for the underprivileged. Donations from our employees and clients fund the Foundation and Mackenzie matches all employee donations dollar for dollar.
Our Foundation was established in 1999 with an original gift of $2.3 million from Mackenzie Financial Corporation. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors and administered by an Employee Committee, both comprised entirely of staff members. The Employee Committee reviews requests for donations and organizes volunteer opportunities for staff.
“The employees of Mackenzie Investments are generous and compassionate, and our Foundation shows how committed they are to helping others in communities across Canada,” says Barry McInerney, President and CEO of Mackenzie Investments.
