It takes a community to create lasting change. At Canada Gives, we’re honoured to spend our days working with a group of dedicated and generous philanthropists and their families, who are on a constant search for new ways to make a difference.

Part of the experience (and joy) of philanthropy is the journey of discovery. It’s about considering your (and often your family’s) core values, then determining how and where to give back. For Sabih Uddin, a retired pharmacist who built his career in the Greater Toronto Area, that process involved several years of reflection and research […]

At the start of 2021, it was difficult to envision exactly how the year would unfold. The coronavirus pandemic still loomed large (and, unfortunately, still does) as we emerged from the best year in Canada Gives’ history. That happened because our Foundation account holders took action at the onset of the pandemic to help charities […]
Earlier this year we shared on social media a diagram from our website that summarizes how a Canada Gives Foundation account works, how donations flow into a donor advised fund and how grants are distributed to charities.
