The Great Canadian Giving Challenge

Have you heard of The Great Canadian Giving Challenge? Happening all of June, every dollar you donate to OFCP qualifies us to win $20,000. Get all the details at www.givingchallenge.ca #GivingChallengeCA 

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is an initiative from CanadaHelps that encourages Canadians across the country to donate to charities throughout the month of June.

For 2020, we're pleased to announce a grand prize of $20,000 —an increase of $10,000 from last year! The giving challenge runs from June 1st to June 30th, and is an opportunity for charities to rally their supporters and drive more donations for their cause.

Every dollar donated to any charity by an individual in June via GivingChallenge.ca, CanadaHelps.org, or CanadaHelps fundraising tools* is an automatic entry for the chosen charity to win a $20,000 donation.
