The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is Back!
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is an exciting month-long contest that gives charities the chance to win a $10,000 donation. Charities are automatically given 1 entry for every $1 they receive in June via CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca. It’s a big incentive that encourages Canadians to donate to their favourite charities! Last June, donations grew 48% over June 2014, the year before its inaugural year. Leverage this contest to increase your charity’s summer donations.
NEW for Canada’s 150: $3,000 in Early Bird Prizes!
This year, we’re giving away an additional $3,000 in Early Bird Prize donations. To qualify, launch your charity’s Canada 150 campaign on CanadaHelps.org by May 15, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. (PDT).* We’ll promote it to the hundreds of thousands of Canadians on our email list.
Offering more chances to win, increased exposure for your charity, and a ready-to-go way for your charity to benefit from Canada 150 and the Great Canadian Giving Challenge, what are you waiting for? Create your Canada 150 campaign page today.
