Face The World Foundation is dedicated to impacting meaningful change in the lives of people who are struggling. From access to shelter and a hot meal to contributing to anti-bullying campaigns to supporting music and sports programs for kids in need. Families, children and anyone who could use a helping hand is in our sights.

We are proudly focused on those in our own backyard of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and we make a concerted effort to seek out emerging charities that are grounded in social entrepreneurialism. See our growing list of recipients below.
