Shawn Mendes Foundation Canada supports SickKids

We are thrilled to announce that SickKids was selected by the newly established Shawn Mendes Foundation as the recipient of one of their first two fundraising campaigns. Shawn has also established the Shawn Mendes Foundation Canada, managed by the SickKids Charitable Giving Fund, to further engage his Canadian fans and partners.


What’s more, one dollar from each ticket sold for his hometown Rogers Center stadium show, as well as donations and a portion of the proceeds from upcoming Canadian brand campaigns with brand partners, Tim Hortons and Roots respectively, will go to the Shawn Mendes Foundation Canada supporting SickKids and other charities close to his heart.

Mendes shared: “I’m so excited to launch The Shawn Mendes Foundation. For a long time, I’ve wanted to find a way to amplify the causes that my fans and I care deeply about, and to help make the voices of our generation heard. My goal in launching the Foundation is to work alongside my fans, and do everything I can to help provide them with a platform that inspires positive change, and empowers young change-makers.”


"For a long time, I’ve wanted make the voices of our generation heard."

We are currently raising funds for the SickKids VS Limits campaign -- the largest in Canadian health care history with a goal of $1.3 billion through philanthropy -- to support building a new SickKids, continued breakthrough paediatric health research and establishing partnerships for better, coordinated patient care.


We look forward to working with Shawn to determine how he can help make the strongest impact based on our highest priority needs.
