As noted earlier, charitable activity occurs in many parts of the world, wherever one finds corporations and foundations committed to philanthropic undertakings.

 

This post explores the distribution of corporate giving programs in Canada. An earlier post explored the distribution of grant-making foundations in Canada.

 

Canadian Corporate Giving:

Based on a list at Charity Village, at least 130 corporate giving programs make charitable donations or grants in Canada. Charity Village’s database briefly describes the purposes and geographic focuses of each giving program and provides links to the individual websites.

 

Of the 130 corporate giving programs, five are international, 86 are national, 15 are regional, and 12 are local. Most of the international programs are based in the United States of America. The regional programs provide support either in parts or all of two or more provinces.

 

Another 12 of the 130 corporate giving programs provide support within specific provinces: one in Alberta (AB), six in British Columbia (BC), one in Manitoba (MB), two in Ontario (ON), and two in Saskatchewan (SK).

It is quite possible that other databases on Canadian philanthropy are more extensive than those presented online at Charity Village; if readers know of any, please send me a comment!

 

Later posts will explore grant-related philanthropies elsewhere in North America — as well as in other countries and regions of the world.
