The Great Canadian Giving Challenge

Your Donation Could Make a BIG Difference For the Charity of Your Choice

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge was created by GIV3 as a public contest to benefit registered Canadian charities.  It occurs each year, across the whole month of June.  It invites all charities to solicit their supporters to make donations in June to help increase the odds for the respective charity to possibly win the Contest. 

For every $1 donated to a registered charity on in June, it automatically enters a “ballot” in support of that charity.  On Canada Day, July 1st, one winning entry is randomly selected among all ballots in support of all the recipient charities.  The one winning ballot triggers a $10,000 grant to the respective charity.
