In the Community

Charities Supported

Since 2001, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has been one of the largest beneficiaries of grants from The Keg Spirit Foundation. Their commitment to impacting children’s lives through mentoring, as well as a shared presence within many of the same communities has made BBBS a natural fit with our Foundation. To date, The Keg Spirit Foundation has contributed more than $1 million to BBBS of Canada through both national and local levels. In all of our U.S. markets, local BBBS chapters have also received annual support since our inception.

The Foundation’s Chairman’s Award is an annual celebration of those who are at the heart of the company - our staff. The award recognizes four Keg employees that have demonstrated a high level of commitment to their communities. Recognized at The Keg’s annual conference, each winner directs $5,000 to the charity of their choice through The Keg Spirit Foundation. Over the years, this program has empowered Keg staff to direct more than $140,000 in Canada, and $45,000 in the U.S. to charities that they support.

Other national charities that have been supported include Free the Children, Youth in Motion’s Top 20 Under 20 program, the Ladybug Foundation Education Program and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

Grants have been issued to more than 300 local charities. For an up-to-date listing of charities supported, please contact us.
