Philanthropy

“Johnston & Daniel has been an incredible partner and friend of Interval House. They have supported us financially and they have supported us with their skill, their talent, and their drive. They help us do what we do best, which is care for women and children who are in crisis and in danger of losing their houses and their lives,”

- Lesley Ackrill, Executive Manager of Interval House, Toronto, Ontario

Commission donations from Johnston & Daniel  brokers and sales representatives, along with staff donations and funds raised at special events, have made a lasting difference at Toronto shelters.  Nationally, the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has helped fund new shelters, create art therapy programs, develop job training initiatives, and cover the cost of crisis counseling and therapy for more than 50,000 women and children each year.

On a national level, our partnership with the ground-breaking Fourth R curriculum-based education program is now in more than 800 Canadian school classrooms and studies report significant results in decreasing violence.

On a local level, J & D directs much of its support to the YWCA Arise Shelter in downtown Toronto.

Together with our partners at the Canadian Women’s Foundation, we take a long-term view to prevention by annually funding innovative grassroots work in every province, including:

  • Programs that help women and their children rebuild their lives after violence
  • Violence prevention programs that reach out to youth
  • Support for children who have witnessed violence to help them heal and prevent them from becoming victims or abusers themselves
