Richardson is truly invested because you are. Through the Richardson Foundation, we support a variety of community projects and organizations across Canada where our customers and employees live and do business.

In 2018, Richardson donated over $2 million to 92 community projects.

Here are some recent examples of how Richardson is helping to create stronger communities across Western Canada.

STARS Air Ambulance

On Friday, April 26, 2019, alongside JRSL and affiliated companies, we were pleased to announce a significant donation of $1 million dollars in support of the Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service Foundation (STARS).

Across Western Canada and Eastern B.C., STARS Air Ambulance service provides vital care and rapid transport to the critically ill or injured in the moments they need it most. With STARS, those living in rural communities, working in remote areas, travelling on highways or being transported from community hospitals to major medical centres, receive the very best in critical care via helicopters staffed and outfitted as mobile ICUs.

STARS is truly, a noble mission and one in which we are immensely proud to help support.

Teulon-Rockwood Arena

The community of Teulon, Manitoba is the proud home of the Teulon Tigers.

All season, these fiesty young athletes can be found on the ice of their local rink, the Teulon-Rockwood Arena. They were just in need of one important thing- a new scoreboard. 

Richardson was proud to contribute $12,500 to the town to give those players a chance to see their team name in lights! 

Milestone Community Pool

Known fondly as “the heart of the community during the summers months”, the Milestone Community Swimming Pool was in dire need of repairs. The Milestone Community Swimming Pool Board volunteer committee immediately began fundraising to bring their beloved local pool up to code.

The pool originally opened in 1971 and has since been the spot for swimming lessons, fitness classes, youth employment and all ages public swimming fun for residents from Milestone, Lang, Riceton, Gray, Yellow Grass and Wilcox.

Richardson was proud to ‘dive in’ and support the community with a $25,000 contribution to the project in 2018.
