Mackenzie Investments started as a small, private advisory in 1967 with one client. Today, over 40 years later, it is one of the largest money managers in Canada, with more than 100 funds sold through 30,000 advisors. Founder Alex Christ understood the importance of philanthropy, community spirit and volunteerism, and the company is still strongly committed to these values.
The Mackenzie Investments Charitable Foundation is the central vehicle for Mackenzie employees to volunteer and give back. The Foundation makes high-impact grants to a select number of charities across the country, with a special focus on children and youth at risk. In 2012, the Foundation granted almost $800,000 to Mackenzie’s charitable partners.
