Who We Are

Who we are hero image
Our cause is social good in Canada.

We work to bolster the charities, nonprofits and social entrepreneurs that build, enrich and define our nation and the communities they support around the globe.

Collective action in the nonprofit sector is more important than ever

We need your help to ensure the sector emerges strong from the COVID-19 crisis. By becoming an Imagine Canada supporter, your donation of $15/month would help to strengthen our advocacy and research efforts, helping us to raise our voice for the sector. We're currently focused on fighting for significant funding to be made available to charities—many of which are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak—to avoid a financial crisis that would jeopardize the charitable and nonprofit sector in Canada. Your support today will allow us to increase our advocacy efforts to ensure that our sector can continue to serve the people and communities you care about most.
