We remove the obstacles to creating a meaningful philanthropic legacy–at home and abroad.
Establishing a foundation with Canada Gives takes less than a day, compared to up to a year when setting up a private foundation.
Perhaps most importantly, we take the administrative burden out of managing a Foundation—from handling third-party grant requests to tax receipting—ensuring all decisions adhere to CRA policies. Whether you’re supporting a charity in Canada or overseas, we provide full administration and reporting services so you can focus on what matters most: creating meaningful change.
We offer philanthropists a flexible and administratively simple way to give back.
To become great at doing good, you need the right infrastructure and a high-touch support system. That’s where we can help. By opening a customized Canada Gives Foundation account, you can support your preferred charities and leave a lasting philanthropic legacy.
We give donors in Canada the ability to fund their preferred charities’ immediate operational needs, while creating a long-term funding base to support annual charitable programs.
