Save and improve lives! Support awareness, prevention, and effective treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
Heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Canada,1 with more than 250,000 Canadians living with congenital heart disease,2 and nearly 750,000 Canadian adults over age 20 live with the effects of a stroke.3
The good news is that many forms of cardiovascular disease are preventable, and congenital heart disease is largely treatable with proper lifelong care.
You can help save lives and make a difference for those living with cardiovascular diseases. Your gift to the Healthy Hearts Fund will support awareness, prevention, and education programs ensuring more Canadians get the treatment they need. You will also support critical scientific research to find new treatments or cures, leading to better health outcomes and saving lives.
Donate today to help achieve wide-reaching effects and have your gift pooled with donations to make a real impact. Plus, get an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits!
What makes up the Healthy Hearts Fund?
The Healthy Hearts Fund by CanadaHelps includes over 30 registered charities who are helping to tackle these cardiovascular diseases.
The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account. This Fund includes research foundations and charities providing information and support resources for diagnosis, treatment, and care of heart diseases.
To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity. We regularly update the list of charities in this Fund.
