Boston Pizza believes that strong role models inspire kids to be great. This is why we created Future Prospects – because things start to look up when you have someone to look up to.

Through our charity partner, LiveDifferent, we focus on connecting youth with positive relationships so that they are empowered to learn, grow, and take action together. Alongside our amazing charity partner, we have been able to inspire hope, create meaningful connections, and spark acts of kindness among youth in communities throughout Canada.

Through our charity partner, Live Different, we help connect kids with role models in their communities to ensure they have the guidance necessary to support their bright futures. Our amazing charity partner has helped us provide positive and meaningful mentorship to children and youth right across Canada.

Bringing people together and taking action — it’s the heartbeat of LiveDifferent. Each year, we help them reach hundreds of thousands of youth with programs that focus on developing resilience, building healthy relationships, and prioritizing making a difference in their communities.

LiveDifferent Builds

Through LiveDifferent Builds, youth (and the young at heart!) are invited to volunteer internationally. Hundreds of Boston Pizza employees have participated in Builds to the Dominican Republic for over 10 years. During this time, we have helped provide safe, secure housing for dozens of families, while strengthening their local communities.

LiveDifferent App

The LiveDifferent app is a digital kindness coach that can be used by individuals, schools and groups to help them develop positive habits, strengthen their relationships, and practice compassion in their communities.

Over the years, the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects has helped support children and families in need, creating stronger and healthier communities across Canada. To date, the Boston Pizza Foundation has raised and donated over $33 million to charities in communities from coast to coast and around the world.

Every year, Boston Pizza runs two campaigns to raise money to help create a better future for kids from coast to coast and all around the world - the Valentine's Day Program and the Kids Cards Program.

Valentine's Day Program

Every Valentine's Day, Boston Pizza franchisees initiate a fundraising by selling heart-shaped pizzas and paper hearts. All money raised is given back to local charities of their choosing. We want to thank our franchisees and our guests for their generosity and support.

Kids Card Program

The Boston Pizza Kids Card promotion runs annually in late summer, early fall. For a $5 donation to the Boston Pizza Foundation, guest receive a Boston Pizza Kids Card for five free Kids Meals. We thank our Boston Pizza franchisees for donating free Kids Meals as a way of thanking and recognize guests for their donations. 

We are excited to see youth find positive role models, develop healthy relationships, grow in kindness, and continue to strengthen our communities through acts of compassion.

At Boston Pizza, we believe that every child has the ability to make a difference in our world, which is why the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects is excited to partner with LiveDifferent and work together to help youth build strong and supportive networks while becoming activated in kindness.
