Creating meaningful change in the world—and finding the spark that ignites your altruistic passions—means something different for everyone. But we can all agree that smart philanthropy, built on enduring partnerships, is the most effective way to deliver hope to those who need it most. Canada Gives is a registered charity that helps philanthropists build high-impact foundations.
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.
Looking to make an immediate impact in your local community and beyond? Opening a Canada Gives Foundation account is simple, straightforward and can be completed in less than a day.
