CDF Icon Pink

The Catherine Donnelly Foundation is pleased to be welcoming Steve Brearton in his new role as Communication & Policy Officer.

Steve will work to communicate the foundation’s transformative commitment to social and ecological justice and collaborate with partners, grantees and other organizations to amplify their voices and share their progressive practices in the public and philanthropic space.

He began his career at Maclean’s magazine and has spent the subsequent years writing, researching and packaging information for Canada’s leading magazines and newspapers. During that time, he prioritized work with organizations involved in environmental education, food security, community health and sustainable transportation.

“Exploring and sharing important issues relating to poverty, equity and justice is what first motivated me to become a writer,” notes Steve. “Working with the Catherine Donnelly Foundation and other organizations committed to those goals feels like a return home.”
