We couldn’t have enabled so much charitable giving without the support or our partners. We’re proud of our work in cooperation with other organizations and are deeply grateful for the support we receive from financial gifts and through integration partnerships that increase donations through CanadaHelps, enabling us to further invest and enhance our platform to better serve Canadians and charities.
GIV3 & Giving Tuesday
We’re pleased to have joined forces with GIV3 in founding Giving Tuesday, the national day of giving launched in 2013. In its first year, over 1,300 partners joined the movement to kick off the holiday season with a focus on charitable donations. Donations through CanadaHelps alone increased by 169% over the same day of the previous year.

We’re pleased they’ve chosen to help us in reaching our goal to increase charitable giving across Canada.
The Obituaries allows visitors to create online memorials and to preserve the memory of the people they love. Leveraging our Application Programming Interface (API), they’ve also made charitable donations an integral part of those memorials. We think that’s an important way to remember someone special and to help increase charitable giving across the nation.
