We receive business donations to The Julia Project Foundation, and we are proud to salute these businesses who have come alongside us in our efforts to help poverty stricken children around the world.
These corporate citizens recognize the importance of giving back. Corporate donations made through the efforts of these special business owners and managers, directly impact the lives of hurting children who simply cannot help themselves.
In our fast-paced world, and especially in the world of commerce, every second seems to count. We're always honored by those who stop their money-making treadmills to gather their employees together to reflect on the needs of others.
Outward thinking produces a strong team building dynamic for many of these businesses. We hear stories of excited motivation in the workplace when we learn how their team decision to donate for a cause pulls them together.
Business donations speak not only to the business team of managers and employees coming together. These givings also speak to their customers and the local community.
It's an important voice that speaks to the young lives it touches, the young lives who cannot move forward without the vital direct interventions from others who care. That's a good feeling and a win-win situation.
We salute the following businesses that have helped...
One of the first businesses to support our efforts was Bell's Signs, Selwyn, ON. This local sign shop has generously donated event signage whenever we've asked for their help. A big Thank You to owner/operator, Ted Bell, and his family.

Boston Pizza, Peterborough, is another participant in our corporate donations program. They have offered us several incentives, such as a coin box at the sports bar, and special Celebrity Server events where different Julia Project Board members and volunteers serving Boston Pizza patrons, get to share about the work of The Julia Project.
We are part of their "Team Sponsorship Program," where patrons mark the back of their food bills with The Julia Project and drop them in a designated collection box. We then receive 10% of the food bill totals as a donation. Go Team Julia Project!
