Giving is part of the Annapolis culture. Since inception, Annapolis has invested over $2 million in worthy causes. Support is directed to organizations that make a difference, both in our community and throughout the world. Annapolis has placed a particular emphasis on supporting initiatives that focus on women, children and health, firstly in our local community but also internationally. A few of the organizations we have been involved with over the years include:
Lionheart Foundation, based in Calgary, Alberta, is focused on the mental health and well-being of adolescent girls and young women (and their families) whose self-esteem has been compromised. The foundation subsidizes families in need of counselling and is committed to building capacity in the community by providing education and training to therapists, health care workers and support professionals.
HomeFront is an internationally recognized, coordinated community-justice response to domestic violence. Working together with justice, law enforcement and the community, HomeFront shares a common vision and goal to reduce domestic violence in Calgary.
Water Wells Project – UNICEF works to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities, while promoting safe hygiene practices, in more than 100 countries around the world. Since 1990, more than 1.8 billion people gained access to improved drinking water through UNICEF’s efforts.
Operation Eyesight has provided sight saving treatment and blindness prevention to millions of people for 50 years. Today, Operation Eyesight is directly active in India and the African nations of Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda and Zambia, investing in sustainable treatment, prevention and community development activities to address specific problems as well as the root causes of blindness.
In 2013, Annapolis established the “Annapolis Foundation” to fund ongoing charitable contributions. Annapolis directs a portion of our profits to our Foundation.
