Business leaders Brad Shaw and family announce more than $10 million for Alberta Charities

In December, Brad Shaw, CEO of Shaw Communications, and his family announced substantial personal donations to six Alberta Charities.

“We understand that the current circumstances facing our communities are particularly difficult, and my family and I will be committing a total of $10 million to causes and organization that make a difference to the health of our province, “Mr. Shaw said. This business leader and philanthropist said, “My family and I are honoured to support the good work of our province’s charities”.

Marjorie Bencz,CM, Executive Director of Edmonton’s Food Bank stated “We have been severely challenged by the increased numbers of people and organizations that need food because of the economic challenges faced by Albertans. This gift will help us provide food on the tables for hungry people in 2016.”

Thank you to Brad Shaw and Family for their timely and generous support!
