Initiatives OT Works! supported in 2023
Project Change Foundation provides financial and other support to early-stage charities in Canada with significant potential for creating social or environmental change.
In 2023, Project Change provided grants and support to the Food Stash Foundation. The Vancouver-based food recovery charity collects about 120,000 pounds of food per month that would have gone to waste, delivers to 35 charity partners, delivers Rescued Food Boxes to over 100 households, and serves 140 Rescued Food Market members weekly. Food Stash utilized the grant from Project Change to support professional development for their employees and received guidance from one of our mentors to assist with enhancing business practices and clarifying the goals and direction of the organization through the lens of its values.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada is the country’s largest international conservation organization. Guided by the best scientific analysis and Indigenous knowledge, they work to conserve species at risk, protect threatened habitats, and address climate change. Their long-term vision is simple: to create a world where nature and people thrive.
Plan International Canada strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. They stand with children, especially girls, wherever they are oppressed, exploited, left behind, or not equally valued.
OT Works! will continue to support organizations as they empower people in Canada and around the world.
