Tom Harris Fund for Families

Creating childhood memories for local kids in need.

We believe that growing up as a kid should be remembered as a time full of care-free and rewarding experiences. However, many local kids in communities across British Columbia and Alberta come from families in need, where once in a lifetime experiences like a week away at summer camp are just not a financial priority.

Created in 2018 to honour Tom Harris' legacy as a family man and community leader in philanthropy, the Tom Harris Fund for Families helps create childhood memories that last a lifetime for local kids from families in need.
