The Great Canadian Giving Challenge June 1st - 30th

by Kathleen Rainville, posted on 2:59 PM, June 2, 2015
The summer is such a wonderful time for Canadians – great weather and longer days means more fun outdoor activities, weekends away, BBQs and much more. In fact it’s so fun, each year many of us forget to support our favourite charities.  This year, say NO to the summer low in charitable giving!  Rise to the challenge and help keep charitable donations strong this summer.

Join the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

Donate to the charities you care about and let them know you care year round.  All donations* you make IN JUNE through or to a registered Canadian charity will automatically enter them to win a $10,000 donation. The more you give, the more chances your favourite charity will win! 

More about this challenge:

  • Every $1 donated between June 1 and June 30, 2015 is an automatic entry for the charity to win (minimum $3 donation required)
  • Grand prize draw is on CANADA DAY, July 1, 2015; and one lucky charity will receive the grand prize of $10,000
  • Can’t choose just one charity? Donate to all the charities you care about to give them all a chance to win!
