TELUS Community Boards

Entrusting local leaders to make the most impactful funding decisions, the 13 Canadian TELUS Community Boards make recommendations on the allocations of funds to the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation Board thus the programs and services that help the most vulnerable among us. Thanks to the generosity of TELUS Friendly Future Foundation donors, including our founding donor, TELUS, we positively impact more than two million youth each year.

All connected for communities

We know that local leaders know their communities best. That’s why each board consists of local experts who help determine which community grants will have the greatest social impact. We support grassroots charities that help vulnerable kids gain access to technology, health, education programs and resources. Charities can apply for funding to one of 13 TELUS Community Boards.
