O Canada! Thanks for your generosity!

Canadians are known around the world for being kind and lending a helping hand to people in need. In June, GIV3 and our partners at CanadaHelps called on Canadians to celebrate the 5th annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge, a national contest that gave Canadians the chance to win $10,000 for their favourite charity.

How it works is simple. Every $1 donated on CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca in June enters their chosen charity to win the $10,000 grand prize that is randomly drawn on July 1st, Canada Day! Charities across the country joined the challenge all month long to encourage their supporters to participate.

Generous Canadians from across the country rose to the challenge, making this the biggest year yet! By the end of June more than 109,000 donors had participated, donating over $14 million to more than 12,000 lucky charities.

And the winner is…

Congratulations to Little Trinity for winning the 2019 Great Canadian Giving Challenge! You can learn more about their charity and the work they do on their Charity Profile Page.

“What a happy, amazing surprise to learn that we’re the grand prize winners! We so appreciate this $10K donation and our team can’t wait to meet and decide how to put it to its best use.”

— David Hutchinson, Corporation Member
