What is the Great Canadian Giving Challenge?
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a month-long initiative to help you drive donations during a slow time of the year for fundraising. Every June since 2015, we’ve given you a reason to engage your donor base, attract new donors, and have the chance to win a major prize donation from CanadaHelps.

Here’s how it works:
Every dollar donated to your charity in June, via or CanadaHelps fundraising tools, is an entry for a chance to win $20,000*. Every charity using CanadaHelps is automatically entered: all you have to do is fundraise. The more you raise, the more chances you have to win!

Good luck!
