WestJet Cares for Kids
As part of their corporate social responsibility, WestJet extends their culture of caring into the community at large. WestJet Cares for Kids works with national charities across Canada to positively impact children’s health and wellness.
WestJet and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada
Since 2007, WestJet and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada have partnered together to directly transform the experiences of both young people and staff in Clubs across Canada.
Gift of Flight
By donating the Gift of Flight, WestJet helps their partners deliver necessary services to children in need, reduce the cost of business travel and also raise much needed funds. WestJetters give their energy and caring spirit everyday by providing customized guest experiences for children who have specialized medical requirements, as well as volunteering in their communities and supporting fundraising efforts. Since 2007, WestJet has donated nearly 3,000 single flights to Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada through their WestJet Cares for Kids program. Thank you, WestJet, for your outstanding commitment!
“At WestJet, we believe in fostering a strong culture of care, and making an investment in our partner charities is no exception. WestJetters across Canada cherish the opportunity to work with Boys and Girls Clubs in their own cities and help support the great work they do.” ~ Corey Evans, WestJet Manager, Sponsorship and Community Investment.
The member clubs of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are incredibly grateful for WestJet’s ongoing generous support, as their gifts of flight enable travel across the country for activities and events that support BGCC programs and our work with young people, their families and the communities in which they live.
Capital One Race for Kids™
WestJet is a proud sponsor of our Capital One Race for Kids™ events coast to coast. A very generous Gift of Flight–good for two individuals to fly to any WestJet destination—is awarded to the top fundraiser in each community.
Westjet funds and hosts our children’s holiday parties every year in both Nanaimo and Comox as well as provide us with 2 sets of 2 “anywhere Westjet flies” vouchers for us to use in our fundraising efforts every year, which in turn support our programs (like TEC) and our Core Programming in Out of School Care.
WestJet is Canada’s most preferred airline, offering scheduled service to 85 destinations in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. Powered by an award-winning culture of care, WestJet pioneered low-cost flying in Canada. Recognized nationally as a top employer, WestJet now has more than 9,700 WestJetters across Canada. Operating one of the youngest fleets of Boeing 737 Next-Generation aircraft, WestJet strives to be one of the five most successful international airlines in the world.
