Welcome to the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation

The Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation was thrilled to hold its third annual charity gala dinner on May 5, 2012. This event was held in honour and remembrance of Shayam Kaushal and was enjoyed by over 550 people who attended. The Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation was created to spread Hope, Strength and Determination to those in need. Shayam fought a courageous 8-year battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and passed away on Feb 10, 2009 at the age of 40. He lived his life with dignity and courage and the foundation created in his name will forever remember and perpetuate his Hope, Strength and Determination.

Thank you

It is with sincere gratitude that everyone involved with the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation thanks all those who attended the 2012 Black and White Charity Ball. The gala evening was truly inspirational as well as motivational. Proceeds of the gala were donated to Free the Children, a remarkable organization that empowers young people to be agents of social change, to help free children from poverty and exploitation both locally and abroad.

On August 30, 2012, the generosity of our sponsors and friends enabled the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation to proudly donate $60,000 to Free the Children.  These funds will be directed towards implementing leadership and mentorship programs for "at risk" youth in 7-10 schools within the GTA.  Our funding dollars will also provide scholarships for 10 - 20 students to take part in the Take Action Academy - a week long, social justice themed camp designed to give young people the leadership skills, confidence and peer support to improve not only themselves, but their world at large.

Special Thanks to Our Inspired Sponsors
This year, the Shayam Kaushal Charitable Foundation was also very proud to present two special awards to Martin Reid of Home Trust and Claudio Polito of Cross-Town Appraisal.  Both of these inspired sponsors raised funds for SKCF through different initiatives.
Under the leadership of Martin Reid, Home Trust raised $11,000 at the 2011 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon which SKCF donated to The Easter Seals Foundation.
At the 2011 Cross-Town Christmas party, $9,800 was raised and directed through the SKCF to support a
Free the Children initiative.
