Adding Charitable Gifts to the CanadaHelps Gift Guide is Easy!

Donors are increasingly motivated to give when they know the tangible impact of their donation. Many large charities benefit by offering charitable gifts—think of campaigns to provide a goat to a family, or a scholarship to a child—especially during the holiday season. The CanadaHelps Gift Guide is a no-charge way for charities of all types and sizes to attract new donors with charitable gifts.

What Kinds of Gifts Work?

Charitable gift ideas can be anything from physical items such as warm blankets, school supplies, or first-aid kits, to outcomes of donations such as the gift of a lifesaving medical treatment for a child in need. You can add gifts that are specifically for the holidays, but we suggest adding gifts that work all year round! We’ll promote your gifts during Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and more!
