Ongoing programs: CanadaHelps is a charitable foundation working to increase giving in Canada through technology. More than 3 million Canadians have donated over $1.8 billion to charities since its founding in 2000., provides a safe and trusted one-stop destination for donors to engage with charities in Canada. Donors can donate once, monthly, or with a gift of securities to, set up a fundraising campaign for, or learn about any charity in Canada. Donors can discover new charities to support by browsing our Gift Guide or charitable campaigns and through our Personalized Discovery and Popular Now tools. CanadaHelps also publishes the Giving Report annually, a data-driven report which provides insights and analysis to help Canadians understand the charitable sector and its impact on Canada. In addition, CanadaHelps develops affordable fundraising technology and provides free training and education for charities so that, regardless of size, all charities have the capacity to increase their impact and succeed in the digital age. More than 24,000 charities in Canada rely on CanadaHelps’ easy-to-use suite of fundraising solutions to maximize online donations and steward their donors, including Customizable Donation Forms, Peer-to-Peer Social Fundraising, Ticketed Events Management, accepting gifts of securities and an integrated Donor Management System.

New programs: Following a successful introduction of Cause Funds in 2020, CanadaHelps launched and powers in November 2021, a site where Canadians can support, learn, and engage with a range of causes. Cause Funds are an innovative way for Canadians to quickly and easily support the causes they are passionate about and fuel the collective work of many registered charities with a single donation. There are over 30 Cause Funds, addressing a variety of causes, and Cause Funds have been particularly successful at attracting younger donors who historically give less to charities.
