What is a “Small Charity”?
Although there are many ways to define a small charity, we define it as a charity that creates a big impact despite having fewer resources, like being entirely volunteer-run or operating with less than 5 full-time staff.
Whether it is a local charity or a charity run by a small group of committed volunteers serving communities abroad, small charities are truly adaptable – utilizing scarce resources for maximum impact.

A charity supporting small charities
As a registered non-profit ourselves, part of our mission is to democratize access to technology to charities both big and small.
Through supporting small charities on CanadaHelps you’re backing these local champions, ensuring that your donation is managed with the utmost transparency and efficiency, and fueling our programs that strengthen Canadian small charities.
Charity Growth Academy is a free program, offering smaller charities across Canada a road map to kick start their digital transformation efforts. It was created by CanadaHelps and made possible with the support of Mastercard ChangeworksTM .
Small Charities Master Class
Every year during mid-September CanadaHelps organizes a multi-day master class series filled with keynotes and panels tailored to helping small charities thrive. Topics span current trends and best practices in fundraising, technology, donor engagement, storytelling, digital marketing and more.
Small charities may not have the loudest voices, but their actions speak volumes, especially during times of crisis. CanadaHelps is proud to support these changemakers with our platform because we know that each gift to them helps make our local communities a better place.
