Canadians have worked hard to flatten the curve of the coronavirus with social distancing and self-isolation. But the country has still experienced more than 70,000 cases and 5,000 deaths, many of which have been concentrated in long-term care facilities and meat-packing plants.
On the frontlines, governments, NGOs, and — most importantly — healthcare workers are engaged in containing the outbreak and safeguarding people. And to do so, these healthcare workers need supplies such as masks, protective suits, goggles and testing equipment.
At home, Canadians also need our help. With a struggling economy and many people without work, community support such as food banks are more important than ever.
Support the pandemic response in Canada and abroad with a giving campaign
You’re probably eager to help, but we know it’s challenging to sort out which national and international charities or nonprofits are doing the most vital work on the ground right now, and which ones to encourage your people to support.
To help you, we created a campaign kit with ready-to-use resources specific to Canada that includes:
- A list of recommended nonprofits, all vetted through the Benevity Causes Portal, to support. We suggest choosing three to six to include in your campaign.
- Templates for a giving opportunity and a News Item.
