The Great Canadian Giving Challenge
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity, occurring annually in June. Every $1 donated to a registered charity on CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca, automatically enters the charity to win a $10,000 donation awarded on Canada Day. In 2016, its second year, 52,000 Canadians participated, donating more than $8 million to over 8,600 charities, representing a 28% increase in donations compared to June the previous year. We look to build on this for Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, when we plan to celebrate 150 years of giving in Canada! More details.
