WestJet Cares for Kids

At WestJet, we've always been about people and our investment in communities is no exception. Although we operate in a very competitive industry, we know that we exist for more than just our bottom line. That's why the WestJet Cares for Kids program was launched in 2007 and currently supports seven national charities that positively impact the health and wellbeing of children and youth.

WestJetters are passionate about helping people in the best way we know how; by providing a caring experience and through the gift of flight. The donation of the gift of flight supports our seven WestJet Cares for Kids partners to deliver essential programs to the children and youth they serve, raise funds and reduce the cost of their business travel.

Over the last 15 years, WestJet has donated more than 100,000 flights thanks to the continued support of our valued guests, community, and network.

WestJet Cares for Kids charitable partners

Our WestJet Cares for Kids partners were carefully chosen; they share our mandate to positively impact young people and their families. From fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to helping reunite missing children with their families - WestJet is there.
