Support anti-racism initiatives in Canada and double your impact!
Racism is a persistent problem in Canada. It is both overt and subtle, and is ingrained systematically within institutions like schools, workplaces, and government — this isn’t new.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, hate crimes against Asian Canadians have risen 97 percent in Vancouver alone, and more than 800 racist incidents have been reported across Canada.1 Within the Canadian justice system, Indigenous Peoples are the most disproportionately overrepresented population2 and in Toronto, Black Torontonians are 20 times more likely to be shot by police than white residents.3 In classrooms across Canada, more than half of students who identify as visible minorities have reported being the victim of racist taunts.4
Taking action against hate, the Anti-Racism Fund supports charities fighting racism in Canada. Plus, for a limited time, every dollar donated to the Anti-Racism Fund will be matched by P&G Canada up to $400,000.*
Your gift will support a wide range of charities in Canada leading anti-racism advocacy efforts, research, education, and more. Your donation will be pooled with gifts from others to help achieve wide-reaching effects and will make a real impact. Plus, you will receive an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits! Donate today to take a stand against racism.
