What is the Great Canadian Giving Challenge?

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a month-long contest to help you fundraise during the slow summer months when donations tend to decline. Since 2015, the Great Canadian Giving Challenge gives you a reason to engage your donor base, attract new donors, and have the chance to win a major prize donation from CanadaHelps.

Here’s how it works:
Every dollar donated to your charity in June, via or CanadaHelps fundraising tools such as Customizable Donation Forms, Ticketed Events, and Peer to Peer Fundraising, is an entry for a chance to win $20,000*. Every charity using CanadaHelps is automatically entered with no registration required. All you have to do is fundraise. The more you raise, the greater the chances you have to win!
