Welcome back to the "Find a Funder" blog series!
For this foundation profile, we’ve decided to profile a funder that has provided over $1.2 million to our customer Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada.
When thinking of The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, philanthropy is not the first thought that comes to mind. However, they do have their own foundation – The Keg Spirit Foundation – that is dedicated to charitable giving.

Some people open a bottle of champagne to celebrate their 30th anniversary, but this wasn’t enough for The Keg. In 2001, they celebrated this milestone by establishing The Keg Spirit Foundation. This foundation has allowed the organization to focus more clearly on finding new ways to give back to local Keg communities.
Their goal is to recognize and support organizations that focus on the development of youth and provide mentorship to young people. The Keg Spirit Foundation has currently raised over $7 million dollars for over 300 charities across North America.
This foundation is seeking to provide funds for projects by charities in good standing that relate to children or youth in some way, and also feature a mentoring component.
