The Presti Foundation is a non-profit organization recently established by Paolo and Pasquale Presti, owners of Presti Homes and Developments. The Presti family has been in the residential development business for 15 years. They started the Foundation with the desire to give back to the community.
ByeByeAllergies (ByeByeAllergies.ca) is a volunteer organization of parents whose mission is to find philanthropic donations to support the project of Dr. Bégin, allergist at CHU Sainte-Justine, to open an oral immunotherapy clinic for severe food allergies. It is a thriving volunteer organization with over 3,100 followers on Facebook (having reached over 64,000 people). With impressive media coverage in the past year, ByeByeAllergies has raised over $80,000 and has gathered over 10,000 signatures on a petition to receive public funding for oral immunotherapy treatment to guarantee the clinic's existence after the first 3 years of philanthropic funding.
