Take part in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge to assist ODLC in the purchase of equipment and tools to bring learning online
Hope you are well during these trying times!!
We are reaching out on behalf of the Orillia and District Literacy Council – to invite you to take part in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge . We hope that you can help us to inspire Canadians to say YES to charitable giving this June.
This year we’re asking donors to help us purchase equipment and tools to provide quality individual upgrading to our adult learners while also entering us for a chance to win the $20,000 grand prize! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking to increase our capacity to deliver online programming.
Charities across Canada are facing fundraising shortfalls and a number of operational challenges due to COVID-19 and the associated social distancing – many charities are in danger of closing their doors. To help charities like us survive and continue to offer our valuable services, CanadaHelps has launched the sixth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge with an increased grand prize.
What is The Great Canadian Giving Challenge?
It is a National public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via CanadaHelps.org, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $20,000 donation. The grand prize draw will take place on July 1st, Canada Day, and one lucky charity will receive this new grand prize of $20,000. CanadaHelps knows that the charitable sector has been hit hard by COVID-19, and has doubled the prize this year!
Did The Great Canadian Giving Challenge make a difference last year? In 2019 over 109,000 Canadians participated, donating more than $14 million to over 12,000 charities, representing a 25% increase in donations compared to June 2018.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We are available to speak to you about The Great Canadian Giving Challenge and what our charity is bringing to this community.
