CanadaHelps COVID-19 Healthcare & Hospital Fund

An easy way to support Canadian hospitals and healthcare providers on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Thank you to the Gore Mutual Foundation for matching $2 MILLION in donations.


Support Canadian hospitals leading the fight against COVID-19.

In just a few short months, COVID-19 has grown into a global pandemic. Across Canada, healthcare systems are overwhelmed and thousands of lives have already been lost due to the virus. In Canada, hospitals are currently treating patients who have contracted COVID-19, while preparing for every worst case scenario as the situation is expected to worsen.

Leading efforts to prepare, hospital foundations and healthcare charities are scaling up operations to ensure healthcare professionals have the necessary support and equipment to care for COVID-19 patients needing treatment. Many hospitals are in desperate need of extra equipment and critical medical aid, including personal protective equipment such as N95 masks, gloves, and much more to protect frontline workers.

Together with the Gore Mutual Foundation, we can support hospitals and medical professionals on the frontlines as we fight against COVID-19.

We’re proud that we have raised over $1 million dollars and every dollar has been matched by The Gore Mutual Foundation. You can continue to help us make an even greater impact by donating today!

Your tax-deductible donation will help Canadian charities ramp up medical response efforts as they face COVID-19. CanadaHelps will distribute the funds to Canadian hospital foundations and charities providing COVID-19 healthcare, and your tax-deductible donation will be pooled with gifts from other generous Canadians to make an even greater impact.

Should the funds raised exceed the amount required to meet immediate and longer-term needs in connection with the COVID-19 crisis, excess funds will be used by these charities for other important initiatives.

What makes up the CanadaHelps Covid-19 Healthcare & Hospital Fund

The CanadaHelps COVID-19 Healthcare & Hospital Fund includes over 110 hospital foundations who are supporting urgent needs in response to COVID-19. These charities need your support to provide lifesaving aid and critical equipment needed for frontline healthcare workers in Canada.

To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred monthly, subject to a minimum of $3 per charity.
