B&G Bright Foundation

The B&G Bright foundation is a foundation set up in our kids’ names, Benjamin and Giselle. Our goal is to help them learn, at a very young age, the importance of giving back to the community and understanding that small changes can make a big impact.

We hope that each year we are able to give back to a charity that is chosen together as a family. We hope that through this charity selection process they can learn a little bit about each charity, how they work and what impact they make to our community while gaining a better understanding of the world around us. It is our long-term goal to allow our kids to utilize their life experiences to help guide the direction of this charity. As such, the B&G Bright Foundation supports all charities in the Calgary area and beyond, from Brown Bagging for Calgary Kids to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

We hope that the B&G Bright Foundation inspires you and your family and hope that you can join us on this journey to help Benjamin and Giselle become better individuals one charity at a time.  

Ivy, Eddie, Benjamin and Giselle
