It has often been said that the mark of a civilized society is how well it treats its most vulnerable members.


Our Vision:
A society where all children, youth, and animals are treated with compassion and love.

Mission

THE MISSION OF THE JOHANSEN-LARSEN FOUNDATION IS TO SUPPORT EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVES THAT IMPROVE THE LIVES OF MARGINALIZED CHILDREN, YOUTH, AND ANIMALS AT RISK.

The Johansen-Larsen Foundation has been established to provide funding for educational initiatives related to marginalized children and youth, and animals at risk. Specifically, funding is to be allocated to transformative and sustainable educational initiatives offered in Canada for:

  1. Marginalized children and youth to empower them to overcome the barriers they may face in their lives; and
  2. Others to learn about social injustices facing the most vulnerable human and animal members of our society, in order to foster engagement and action in addressing issues related to poverty, marginalization and/or inhumane treatment.
