The Kol Hope Foundation for Children is a Canadian charitable organization that helps and supports children with disabilities in Canada and around the world.

The foundation is named after Kol, who was born with Trisomy 13, a fatal genetic syndrome. Kol was severely disabled, required life support and 24 hour care, was fed by a g-tube and was unable to walk or talk.

He passed away on October 9th, 2011, and has left behind an incredible legacy of love, charity and hope.

He is the story and inspiration behind Kol Hope Foundation for Children. Since its inception, the Kol Hope Foundation for Children has been devoted and dedicated to caring for children with disabilities. Kol Hope is proud to have SickKids, Easter Seals and World Vision as its Canadian beneficiaries.

The Kol Hope Foundation for Children is pleased to partner with TOM* Toronto Men’s Fashion Week in its initiative to fuse fashion and charity together, through MensFashion4Hope, which is specifically aimed at raising funds for the Kol Hope Fund at SickKids.


SickKids played an important role in Kol’s survival, and it was through the hospital’s medical and professional care that Kol surpassed his diagnosis of three months, and lived for 14 years. This special fund created under his name, allows all the “little Kols” of the world, a chance for a better life. The Kol Hope Fund at SickKids supports the work of the hospital, and helps fund the Sick Kids Genetics Clinic, which provides the best care to kids with chromosomal disorders. The total cumulative total donated to SickKids is $130,000 to date.

The Kol Hope Foundation for Children‘s charity number is #86967 9415 RR 0001
