How our dream started
Capital Integral Charitable Foundation (CICF) is a local Ottawa charity that was started in 2018 by Erin Horowitz and Dan Fried. 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.
CICF was thus born and the search for like-minded Board members began. We are pleased to report that our Board now consists of 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. Every 3 years, we will decide on a different segment of our community to help. We believe this will allow us to touch many different groups in our region.
Our first partnership was to support 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.
This year and for the next 3 years, we are very excited and proud to be helping raise funds for the School Breakfast Program in partnership with The Ottawa Network for Education.
Children can not learn when hungry. Concentration is difficult, processing information is slower and general discomfort all comes from not starting the day with a nutritious breakfast.
Our goal is to raise $100,000.00 yearly. That would mean our donors and sponsors will have provided 100,000 meals to hungry children. We will be raising this money through our very generous Children's Champions, who have readily supported this cause, as well as through different and fun events throughout the year. Every little bit helps us so please spread the word and give what you can.
