Cowan in the Community.
The Cowan Foundation was established in 1995 in honour of our founder, Frank Cowan, and has since donated more than $35 million to various charities.
The success of the Princeton Holdings Limited group of companies, including Cowan Insurance Group, has enabled The Foundation to continue its mission to make a positive difference in the lives of Canadians and enhance the broader well-being of our communities.
We are incredibly proud to be a part of the positive impact made by The Cowan Foundation and believe that our organization’s success and the health of the communities in which we operate are interdependent.
Included in the programs and initiatives that Cowan supports annually are the following:
The Cowan Foundation supports our corporate culture, encouraging employee community involvement in areas that matter to them.
The Community Volunteer Program distributes funds annually to charities selected by volunteering employees and their families. Employees that meet the program eligibility requirements, which include 10-50 hours of volunteer work in the program year, select a qualified organization that will receive a pro-rated donation of up to $1,000. Since the program’s inception in 2003, $648,000 has been donated to employee-directed charities.
Our annual golf tournament, established in 2002, has raised funds for a variety of charities that support the communities where we live and work. Every year, our business partners, community associates, and clients contribute to Cowan Charity Classic fund-raising efforts, which The Cowan Foundation generously matches dollar-for-dollar. To date, the Cowan Charity Classic has raised over $2 million for community organizations like the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, iSisters Technology Mentoring in Ottawa, House of Friendship in Waterloo Region, Woodstock and District Developmental Services, the Hamilton Children’s Developmental Rehabilitation Program and Habitat for Humanity Canada. In 2022 we held our most successful golf tournament to date, raising $180,000 for Children’s Mental Health Ontario.
The Cowan Foundation is pleased to share its 2022 Community Impact Report. Over the past year, we have had the privilege of supporting organizations that are committed to being a driving force for positive change.
Cowan Insurance Group and The Cowan Foundation announced that a record $180,000 was raised at the Annual Cowan Charity Classic golf tournament held in September at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario.
