The Thomas Alan Budd Foundation was established in 2007 as a way for Thomas Budd and his two sons, Dillon Thomas Budd and Payton Leigh Budd, to show their generosity and to help others by giving back to their community. Following the tragic deaths of his sons, Dillon (2015) and Payton (2017), Tom continues to support others.
“After losing both of my teenage sons to suicide I have continued to gain strength and feel joy at times.
This year I will be shifting some of my philanthropic focus to the memory of my boys, Payton and Dillon to honour the caring side of their personalities.
In doing so, I have created a new Fund, the Payton and Dillon Budd Memorial Fund with a primary focus on mental health issues in the Okanagan Valley.
The Thomas Alan Budd Foundation will match all funds raised in the Payton and Dillon Budd Memorial fund which will continue for the remainder of my lifetime.”
