How to find the right charity for you

  • 1. Find a charity that supports your favourite cause

    There is no shortage of good causes. The key is finding the charity whose mission statement fits your values, addresses a problem or community you are passionate about, and inspires you. If it is an environmental charity, is the charity itself taking the steps to be environmentally conscious?

  • 2. Decide how you want to help

    From one-time donation, fundraising for the charity, and volunteering – there are multiple avenues that you can support a charity. Reach out to the charities program manager to discover all the ways that you can support.

  • 3. Measure the charities impact

    Make sure your hard-earned dollars are going towards a high-impact environmental charity. Charity Intelligence Canada is a great tool to find the best environmental charities through their detailed and transparent reports on charities’ impact.

Raise money for conservation

Canada is the second-largest country in the world – its land area is almost 10M sq km, but what is often forgotten is that it also has more than 200,000 km of coastline. Conservation charities promote conservation and sustainable management of Canada’s natural resources.
