Dave Smith Foundation

It’s been well over a decade since we first started supporting the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre as volunteers and donors. We have given of our time to serve on the board of directors and donated our talents to help with a number of marketing, branding and communication projects.

Truth be told we didn’t intent to stick around this long but the inspiring work done by this incredible organization has kept us coming back for more. Everyday the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre cares for young people who are struggling with drug and alcohol addictions as well as mental health issues. Their works is life changing for young people and families.

When the new Dave Smith Foundation was formed in 2012, Stephen McGill was asked to serve as Chair of the Board of Directors and McGill Buckley offered to donate all the creative services to get things up and running for the marketing of the foundation and the soon to be launched Dave’s Dream fundraising campaign.

Dave Smith Foundation Website

Working with the Executive Director, Stephanie MacGregor and Cheryl Fequet, Development Coordinator of the Dave Smith Foundation we spent a number of months talking, planning, designing, developing content and building the new website.

Our core website team included McGill Buckley partners  Stephen McGill and Nadine Buckley as well as our oh-so treasured web development associate Steve Puddick who graciously donated all his time to build and tweak every aspect of the site in WordPress. To say that Steve Puddick went over and above on this project would be an understatement of gargantuan and mythic proportions.

Dave Smith Foundation Videos

Also as part of our work in developing the new Dave Smith Foundation website, we turned to our video producer extraordinaire Caroline Ives to help us put together a series of new web videos featuring the heartwarming stories of youth, parents, volunteers and staff of the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre.
