Delivering a Brighter Future for Children

Putting hope in children’s lives guides Canada Post in its community investment endeavours. The Canada Post Community Foundation for Children delivers a brighter future for children and youth in Canada by supporting registered charities, school programs and local initiatives.

The Foundation granted approximately $4 million to more than 320 community projects in 2013, 2014 and 2015 to support a wide range of programs. In 2015, the Foundation granted almost $1.2 million in vital support to 106 community organizations across Canada. The Foundation intends to grant an additional $1.2 million in September 2016.

The Foundation contributes to building libraries, creating sports and breakfast programs, and ensuring children have access to crisis lines, anti-bullying and mental health initiatives, special needs clinics and life-skills training. The money has helped promote physical activity and play for kids of all abilities and helped at-risk youth gain a better understanding of how education is vital to their future.

The 2016 Canada Post Community Foundation Campaign runs from September 26 to October 30. As always, Canada Post employees will be doing their part to eclipse last year’s fundraising total by holding local fundraisers and making donations through the Dime a Day payroll deduction program. The rest will come from customer donations and sales of a fun new fundraising stamp. When you visit a post office during the campaign, please say “yes” when asked to support the campaign. Together, we will deliver a brighter future for Canadian kids!
