What is The Great Canadian Giving Challenge? It is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $10,000 donation. The grand prize draw is on Canada Day and one lucky charity will receive the grand prize of $10,000.
Did the Great Canadian Giving Challenge make a difference last year? In 2017, 77,785 Canadians participated, donating almost $10 million to over 10,000 charities, representing an 83% increase in donations compared to June 2014, the year before the inaugural launch of the challenge in 2015.
