Helping youth say hello to a friendlier future

At TELUS Friendly Future FoundationTM, we're connecting at-risk youth to a world of opportunities by funding Canadian charities that offer health or education programs that support their development.

Opening doors to brighter futures

When at-risk youth have the support and resources they need to learn, be creative and stay healthy, whole new worlds of opportunity open up for them.

Our support for over 500 Canadian charities each year helps youth thrive in a digital world.
