Beedie Living

At Beedie, we believe in the power of our communities and the individuals who live in them. Our founder, Keith Beedie, instilled his unwavering commitment to giving back in the company that bears his name. Keith always said that being involved in the communities where we live and work is not only good for business, it’s the right thing to do. His son and Beedie President, Ryan Beedie, echoes the same unwavering belief. Through our Built for Good social responsibility promise, that legacy is our driving force and can be seen through a variety on ongoing philanthropic endeavors that support the people in our communities who need it most.

The Beedie Foundation promotes the well-being of communities through the contribution of funds, time and initiatives. Beedie has donated more than $58 million to more than 300 organizations and community endeavors. Beneficiaries include healthcare, education and safety-based projects both close to home and around the world.
