ABOUT THE ARDENE FOUNDATION

Hey, we're the Ardene Foundation. Our mission is to inspire meaningful change in the realms of empowerment, poverty, education, and health by leveraging the strength of our communities. Help us shape a better world!

Our involvement with non-profits started back in 1982, but we’ve made leaps and bounds since then. Today, we take a collaborative approach to fundraising that integrates local and global partners, along with our team members and the broader Ardene community.

Our stores, customers, and head office staff all play a big part in supporting the Ardene Foundation – from in-store events to group volunteering – everybody at Ardene has the power to make a difference.

With the help of all our generous supporters, we’re proud to say we’ve surpassed our goal of donating over $4M across all our charity initiatives.
