TELUS Friendly Future Foundation

A friendlier future begins today

Without access to critical support and resources, the health and well-being of many youth are at risk. That’s where we come in. We’re helping improve outcomes for over two million youth each year by supporting local charities across Canada. Join us today.

About us

All youth deserve equal opportunities

TELUS Friendly Future Foundation® is an independent registered charity that supports the well-being of youth who face obstacles to reaching their full potential. 

With support from TELUS, 100% of your donations give youth opportunities to develop confidence, skills and a sense of belonging.

Our funding priorities

""

Health and education

When support and resources are more accessible, youth are empowered to take control of their health and well-being.

""

Innovative use of technology

When counselling, peer support, and mentoring programs are adapted for current technologies, youth feel less isolated and more connected to others.

""

Stronger communities

When we come together to create a healthier world, we break down barriers and build a more inclusive and sustainable society.
