He is the man behind the biggest hits of this century, with the first in 1978 and every decade afterward. His music has sold more than half a billion records by diverse artists such as Madonna, Celine Dion, Chicago, Whitney Houston, Air Supply, and will.i.am.

Foster launched the David Foster Foundation in his hometown of Victoria, BC, in 1986. Across Canada, the David Foster Foundation financially supports families for all non-medical expenses while their children are undergoing lifesaving organ transplants.

“More than 90% of Canadians support organ donor registration, but less than 25% of us are registered, and when families face the most difficult moments in their lives – when their child is sick and in need of a transplant – our role is to come alongside the family and take away that financial burden so they can focus all their attention on the child and not have to worry about losing their house or wondering where they are going to get the money to pay their bills.”

Thanks to its annual fundraising efforts and the generous support of national partners like TELUS, WestJet, Aird & Berlis, LLP, Honda Canada Foundation, OUTFRONT Media Canada, and Schnitzer families receive support for expenses incurred when traveling away from their homes to be with their child during transplant.

Concert tickets, ranging from $49 to $119, are still available through Ticketmaster.

The Foundation also promotes organ donor awareness and registration in both Canada and the United States. For more information, visit www.davidfosterfoundation.com.
