Rodan + Fields Prescription for Change Foundation Launches in Canada; Pledges $250,000 to Canadian-based Charity

CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Rodan + Fields marks the second anniversary of business in Canada by officially expanding its philanthropic arm, the Prescription for Change® (PFC) Foundation, into the country and donating $250,000. The PFC Foundation, a non-profit organization funded through Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants and by the company, will continue to focus on youth empowerment with WE Charity, an international charity that is part of WE, and empowers change with resources that create sustainable impact. The PFC Foundation has committed $250,000 to WE Charity throughout the coming year to help make a life changing impact in schools and groups in Canada. 

The partnership between the PFC Foundation and WE Charity underscores Rodan + Fields belief that everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in their own lives—and in the lives of others. This new partnership builds on the success of the PFC Foundation in the United States, which has granted millions of dollars to youth service to empower change.

“I am thrilled to expand PFC’s mission of supporting youth with empowerment programs in partnership with WE,” says Amnon Rodan, Chairman, Rodan + Fields. “The PFC Foundation is the heart and soul of Rodan + Fields and gives our organization the opportunity to give back and inspire each other. As the brand grows globally, PFC is excited to bring life-changing impact to Canada.”

“Thanks to the partnership with the PFC Foundation, WE Schools will continue to be free for young Canadians across the country. Through the program, youth learn that they can be leaders in their communities, and are empowered to tackle issues they are passionate about,” said Marc Kielburger, co-founder of WE.

The partnership will provide youth with the education and tools to foster a sense of personal responsibility and promote change. By planning local and global actions to improve their community and the world, the students funded by the PFC Foundation will help to create the next generation of charitable and socially-informed citizens.
