Canada Cares was started with the idea to ensure that Canada’s charities could continue to support their community.
We are calling for the federal government to implement a 1:1 donation matching program to sustain the charitable sector across the country. A matching fund has the capacity to double the impact of donations made by ordinary Canadians, empowering the charitable sector to survive COVID-19 and thrive beyond the pandemic.
We’re asking Canadians from coast to coast to coast to raise their voices, share their stories, and call for a sustainable future for the charitable sector. As charities continue to join our campaign each day, our efforts now turn to welcoming additional community members. We need your help with inviting Canadians who support charities just like yours to add their voice to the campaign. We want to make sure elected officials hear directly from their local constituents about a donation matching fund and its potential to support the charitable sector.
