What: The retailer’s Shoppers Foundation for Women’s Health has released its 2023 Impact Report.

The foundation is committed to investing $50 million by 2026 to improve access to care, increase awareness of women’s health needs and support critical research and innovation. 

In 2023, it raised $11 million toward that target, benefiting 371 partner organizations and impacting more than 400,000 women across Canada.

Last year's fundraising efforts brings the total amount raised by the foundation to $22 million since it first launched in July 2023. 

Its fundraising efforts are driven by several events and partnerships including: the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women; Giving Shelter; Beauty Mingle; community grants; and menstrual equity.

"The foundation's vision is to build a future where care is equitable and accessible, so that all women in Canada can lead healthier lives. We're proud of the progress we made in 2023 toward achieving this goal – investing in partnerships, grants, and impactful campaigns like Run for Women and Giving Shelter – but know there's more work to be done. Together with our partners and generous supporters, we're committed to continuing this important work, making a meaningful impact in our communities and the lives of countless women across the country," said Jeff Leger, president of Shoppers Drug Mart and chair of the board for Shoppers Foundation for Women's Health, in a press release.
