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.

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.
When we come together to create a healthier world, we break down barriers and build a more inclusive and sustainable society.
Your generosity helps local charities address urgent needs facing youth
With your support, we contribute $8 million+ to more than 500 local charities across Canada each year. Together, we’re committed to helping make the future brighter for youth and their families.
With your support, our impact continues to grow. Discover how TELUS Friendly Future Foundation is helping create meaningful change in the lives of children and youth.
