WestJet Cares for Kids

At WestJet, we've always been about people and our investment in communities is no exception. Even though we operate in a very competitive industry, we know that we exist for more than just our bottom line. That's why WestJet Cares for Kids was launched March, 2007 and supports eight 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. Our donations of the gift of flight help our eight WestJet Cares for Kids partners deliver essential programs to the children and youth they serve, raise funds and reduce the cost of their business travel.

Of course, none of this would be possible without you, our valued guests and community neighbours. Thank you for supporting us so that we can support the health and wellbeing of our community’s young people.

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.
