At Montridge, we see it as our responsibility to dedicate time and effort to improve our environment and community. Collectively and individually, we support and are involved with a number of charitable organizations throughout our community. Our ongoing initiatives are an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others by investing in education, people and social development. Additionally, during the holiday season, each staff member at Montridge chooses a cause close to their heart to support. This may take the form of delivering holiday hampers to the needy in Vancouver’s East Side, helping organize a Dress for Success event for low income individuals or donating to the BC Women’s and Royal Columbian Hospitals to help build resources.
The 2017 Motionball Marathon of Sport was the largest Vancouver fundraiser to date with 24 Teams of young professionals raising a record-breaking $126,000 net in support of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation! Montridge employees are proud to participate in this event, teamed up alongside local Special Olympics athletes.
