CanadaHelps, a public charitable foundation (896568417RR0001), is Canada's only donation portal that provides access to all of Canada's 80,000 charities, from national organizations like national cancer charities to smaller groups like local animal shelters and soup kitchens.
CanadaHelps knows just how important donors are to charities (as we are a charity ourselves), and how important the charities are to the donors that support them. But today, donors in Canada have unique needs and desires, as all donors are not created equal. No matter what type of charitable donor you might be, CanadaHelps can accommodate all your giving needs.
