Annual Fundraising Campaigns

2016

This year, COBS Bread hopes to raise $100,000 for Breakfast Club of Canada in bakery and through sales. 

From September 16 - 18, $1 from every sandwich loaf sold at COBS Bread will be donated to the Club. Check out full details of our COBS Cares fundraiser weekend.

In addition to our Annual Breakfast Club of Canada fundraising campaign, our End of Day Giving program ensures that all product at the end of the day is donated to various charities throughout each community.

Together, we can make a difference, one breakfast at a time.


 

2015

From September 12 - 20, 2015, $1.00 from every Higher Fibre and Whole Wheat loaf was donated to The Club.

Together, our bakeries and customers helped us raise $76,005!  Our goal was to raise over $75,000 for The Club this year and we are so pleased to have exceeded our target.

We were also pleased to co-sponsor with JLL a family fundraising event on September 19 at Jericho Beach Park, Vancouver.  This event featured children’s activities including a petting zoo, a BBQ, a live band and more.  All proceeds from the corporate sponsorships and ticket sales were donated to the Breakfast Club of Canada.  The Spencer Creo Foundation matched our donation and with the match, this event raised $25,790!

2014

From September 11 – 24, 2014, COBS Bread donated $1 for every Higher Fibre loaf sold to Breakfast Club of Canada during the Higher Fibre for Higher Learning campaign. COBS Bread bakeries across Canada raised $41,822.
