Every year, federal employees and retirees step up to support Canadians who need help the most. In fact, more than one million have proudly donated to the Government of Canada Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) over the past decade — making the GCWCC the largest campaign of its kind in our country.

If you are a federal retiree, we hope you will carry on this proud tradition of generosity by supporting your local United Way/Centraide, HealthPartners or another charitable organization of your choosing.

Did you know?

  • Last year, Government of Canada retirees donated almost $3 million through the GCWCC. Contributions of federal retirees support everything from reducing social exclusion and poverty to dealing with a major illness.
  • Canada offers some of the most generous tax credits for charitable giving in the world? By giving through your pension now, your gift goes seamlessly to your T4A so your contribution is recognized. It’s never been so easy!

It’s who we are! Join the overwhelming majority of Canadians — 84% — who make a financial donation to charity. Our generosity defines us.

Why give?

It’s what we do: improve the lives of Canadians.


“I escaped an abusive relationship. I felt so alone and worthless… I didn’t think life would ever get better. Then, I visited a family resource center supported by United Way and for the first time in years, I felt safe. I was surrounded by people who cared. Today, I help others find safety and belonging, just like they did for me. Do you know what your donation looks like? It looks like me.” - Dawn


“My wife Patricia lost four members of her family to ALS. She saw how the disease progressively shuts down muscle function — and so when she learned that she too had this fatal disease, we were terrified. Without the support of ALS Canada, we would not have been able to manage as well or keep her as comfortable as possible at home.” - Nigel
