Dedicated to making Canadian society better for all individuals, projects and donations have varied widely in size and function since the inception of the organization in 2007. This is just one more way Honda is giving back to the communities to which it belongs. Attempting Important Change
There are few restrictions on who can receive a Honda Canada Foundation grant, as long as it contributes to bettering the well-being of individuals, communities, or the environment. In fact, the Foundation logo is designed to reflect its three main focuses: education, environment, and engineering. Charities must be imaginative, youthful, scientific, forward thinking, and/or humanistic, and they must recognize and respond the changing needs of various communities. Who Receives Support?
