Delivering a Brighter Future for Children

The Canada Post Community Foundation for Children has announced its 2015 grant recipients. In all, 107 organizations across Canada will share in a total of $1.2 million in grants. These organizations are all working hard to deliver a brighter future for our nation’s most precious resource – our children.

Over the past three years, the Foundation has provided more than $4 million in assistance to help build libraries, create recreation and breakfast programs, and ensure children in need have access to crisis lines, tutoring, anti-bullying initiatives, mental health clinics and playgrounds.

Our only regret is that for all the good work employees and customers did in our 2014 campaign, we still had to say “no” to more than 90 per cent of the grant requests we received. With the need so great, we have one target in mind – to raise more money this year than we did last year.

The 2015 Canada Post Community Foundation Campaign runs from September 28 to October 31. As always, Canada Post employees will be doing their part to eclipse last year’s total by holding fundraisers and making donations through the Dime a Day payroll deduction program. The rest will come from customer donations and sales of our new fundraising stamp, which is about the power of storytelling and the freedom to pretend.
