Sharing our prosperity within our communities

Odyssey Group has a long history of giving back to the communities in which its employees live and work. Established in 2007, the Odyssey Group Foundation (Foundation) supports charitable organizations focused on healthcare, food and shelter, community and human services, education, the environment, disaster relief and cancer research. To date, the Foundation and its business affiliates have pledged $85 million to more than 550 charities around the world.

In 2023, charitable distributions totaled $9.6 million, which included a $3.9 million contribution to Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (Fairfax) for its philanthropic endeavors, and $2.7 million that was directed to 150 organizations around the world as part of Odyssey’s biennial Employee Nomination Campaign. The recipients of this campaign are listed below.

Our continuation of the Kelsey Dickson Team Science Courage Research Award is especially meaningful. Not only does it keep the memory of our dear colleague’s daughter alive, but Odyssey’s funding actually helped make an incurable form of cancer curable. It is truly a gift that keeps on giving.”
