Peter Nygards charitable foundation encompasses a multitude of endeavors

Through the years, NYGARD’s charitable foundation, NYGARD for Life, has encompassed a multitude of endeavors; while the program’s emphasis and commitment has and will remain to be to help eliminate breast cancer, we have broadened it to also incorporate a mandate that improves all aspects of the lives of women. 

Our sponsorships encompass our annual endowment fund to CancerCare Manitoba. This support allows CancerCare Manitoba to deliver world class researchers to work at the NYGÅRD sponsored Breast Cancer Tumour bank. 

We have also sponsored a Mobile Mammography Unit that journeys to isolated areas to screen women who might typically not be able to journey to urban centres for mammograms. A function of our donation has members of the Symphony Orchestra playing for breast cancer patients while they get treatment and has delivered thousands of uniquely designed mammography gowns for patients to use during screening. To shine a limelight on the courageous women, NYGARD includes breast cancer survivors as the stars in all of our Fashion Shows.

All monies generated through NYGARD for Life specifically has an effect on Breast Cancer survivors and to advance the substantial needed research to discover a cure. As a function of our focus to raise awareness, our fashion shows showcase breast cancer survivors.
