Sears CSR

Our Partners

For over half a century, Sears Canada has contributed to the well being of communities across Canada.

Since our beginning in 1953, Sears Canada has always believed in giving back to the communities we serve. At Sears, an Imagine Caring Company, our commitment is focused on helping young Canadians reach their full potential. The Sears Canada Charitable Foundation (SCCF) is a registered Canadian charity established to help collect and distribute donations to charitable organizations that align with its mission to support the healthy development of youth across Canada. The Foundation's Sears In Your Community events and initiatives help support the Foundation and its mission at both the national and local levels.

In 2013, Sears and the Sears Foundation continued our investment in the future of Canadian youth, together facilitating donations of over $7.3 million to over 200 national and community charitable organizations. Monies are generated through a combination of corporate donations plus the generosity of Sears associates, customers, and suppliers who actively participate in a number of initiatives in store and within the community.

Our commitments to our partners:

  • Sears and the Sears Foundation are committed to events and initiatives which fall under the umbrellas of two succinct and worthy charitable causes: Children's Health, with a focus on Children's Cancer and Youth Education, through After-School Programming.
