Give to Change Lives

Public servants care about their communities and the people who live in them, and they have built a tradition of giving through the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC).

Every act of giving counts. You can make a difference through financial gifts or volunteering your time. Whichever way you choose to give, you are helping to change lives and deliver results that matter.

Ways to Give

Giving is easy and secure.

Payroll deduction

Spread your donation evenly over the entire year. Deductions begin on the first pay in January.

  • Your donation will appear on your T4 slip the following year, so you don’t have to keep track of multiple receipts.

Credit card

Give a one-time credit card donation, or spread out your donation with 12 equal monthly donations.

  • The charge will occur on the 15th day of each month, beginning in January.


Make a one-time PayPal donation using ePledge and choose to immediately receive a tax receipt by email.

  • On the ePledge form, checking off the PayPal button allows you to proceed to the PayPal site. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can create one at PayPal
