TORONTO — Molson Coors is donating another $1.5 million to BIPOC organizations dedicated to equity, empowerment, justice and community building as part of its Project Justice initiative, bringing its total investment to $4.5 million since 2020.

Donations will be made to BlackNorth Initiative to support its Homeownership Bridge Program and FoodShare, as well as organizations providing counselling, education and justice support for Indigenous peoples and communities across Canada.

Additionally, Molson Coors is allocating more than $500,000 in grants to provide educational cost relief to students from underserved communities seeking to finish their college degree across North America. The grants will provide emergency support and scholarships, mentorship support and opportunities to learn, practice and apply workforce skills. The grants will also support technical institutes and educational programming across North America, including financial student award opportunities at the University of British Columbia (UBC).

“As a company, we firmly believe equitable access to higher education and mentorship opportunities are crucial to closing the opportunity gap among BIPOC students in underserved communities,” says Gavin Hattersley, president and CEO at Molson Coors Beverage Company. “This year, we are proud to invest in more than 20 technical institutions dedicated to addressing educational disparities and creating a more diverse pipeline of future employees and leaders.”
