About The Michael Benny Foundation

Established in 2017, The Michael Benny Foundation undertakes, develops and supports major initiatives in the areas of advanced education, animal well-being and youth zoological educational programs throughout Canada. Michael Benny believes that philanthropy is a driving force behind positive change in people’s quality of life. For this reason, he formed The Michael Benny Foundation to build upon and support programs for those who are financially disadvantaged or just need support to advance the interests of education, animal well-being and for youth programs.

In the recent past, donations have been made to various charitable causes through The Michael Benny Foundation.
