The Great Canadian Giving Challenge
Start date: 1 June, 2015
End date: 30 June, 2017
GIV3 and CanadaHelps.org are teaming up in June 2015 to launch the first annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge, a National contest open to all Canadians and Canadian charities. The challenge invites Canadians to donate to charities of their choice: DONATE TO ANY REGISTERED CANADIAN CHARITY IN JUNE AND AUTOMATICALLY ENTER THEM TO WIN A $10,000 DONATION, COURTESY OF THE GIV3 FOUNDATION. The challenge will be an annual event, with the winning charity to be chosen on Canada Day each year. The 2017 Giving Challenge will be a coast-to-coast celebration of giving with a Canadian theme designed to align with Canada's 150th birthday celebrations.
Nature of the Project Reach
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is open to any registered charity in Canada. The potential reach for this is enormous, given the breadth and depth of the reach that Canadian charities have in communities across the country.
The goal of the Great Canadian Giving Challenge is to encourage more giving during a traditionally slow time for charities. The beauty of the challenge is that it invites all charities and the public to participate.
The project needs increased funding to grow awareness for the Giving Challenge and increase the prize pool. Our goal is to make prizes available in each province as well as add corporate matching funds to donations made during the challenge period.
