WHO WE ARE
How our dream started
Capital Integral Charitable Foundation (CICF) was established in 2018, our founders wanted to find a way that the Capital Integral Group of Companies could give back to the community that had given so much to them.
So CICF was created and the search for like-minded Board members began, we were pleased to find a group of motivated and resourceful people who are excited to be part of such an amazing organization.
We live in a great community and our goal is to help improve the lives of those who live in and around the Ottawa area. Our plan is to work with different segments of our community to help with their causes, we believe this will allow us to touch many different groups in our region.
Our first partnership was to participate in the 24 Hours at Tremblant in Dec 2019. With the help of some excellent sponsors and dedicated staff, we raised $70,000 for children’s charities through this fun and exciting event.
After the success with that event, the Board agreed on a 3 year partnership with The Ottawa Network for Education, in particular to raise funds for the School Breakfast Program. All our Board members attended or had children attend school in the Ottawa region and know the importance of proper nutrition and its role in learning.
Quite simply children cannot learn when hungry, it makes concentration more difficult, processing information is slower and general discomfort all comes from not starting the day with a nutritious breakfast.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $75,000.00 annually for the School Breakfast Program, that would mean our donors and supporters will have provided at least 75,000 meals to hungry children. In the current environment the number of requests for breakfast has increased and with the new COVID guidelines on food handling costs of the food for the program have increased by more than 50%. Making the support of this program more urgent that ever.
Every little bit helps us so please spread the word and give what you can.
